Lundin Petroleum spudded the 33/2‑2S exploration well to assess the potential of the Morkel prospect in PL 579, which is located 180 km west of Florø on the Norwegian west coast. The main goal of the well is to test the hydrocarbon potential and reservoir properties of Jurassic-aged intervals. The well’s planned total depth is 3500 m below mean sea level, and drilling is being conducted using the semisubmersible drilling rig, Bredford Dolphin. Lundin (50%) is the operator with partners Bayerngas Norge (30%) and Fortis Petroleum (20%).
