Lundin Norway started drilling at its Vollgrav South prospect, located in North Sea license PL631. The well is 150 km west of Florø, on the Norwegian west coast, and between the Gullfaks and Statfjord fields. The planned total depth is 3050 m below mean sea level, and the well will be drilled by semisubmersible Bredford Dolphin. Drilling is expected to take 55 days. The well will test the potential of the Upper Jurassic sandstones. Lundin estimates that the Vollgrav South prospect contains unrisked, gross prospective resources of up to 57 million BOE. Lundin (60%) is the operator, with partners Bayerngas Norge (30%) and Fortis Petroleum Norway (10%).
