The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate, NPD, has granted Aker BP drilling permits for two wells in the Norwegian part of the North Sea. The wells 25 / 2-19 S and 25 / 2-19 A will be drilled using Maersk Interceptor drilling rigs in the North Sea’s production license 442.

Aker BP is licensed accountable with a 90,26 percent stake. The only other licensee is Lotos Exploration and Production Norway AS with a rate of 9,74 percent. The license area consists of part of block 25/2 and part of block 25/3. Both wells are drilled about 15 kilometers north of the Frøy field about 140 kilometers from the coast.

Production license 442 was awarded on 15 June 2007, in APA 2006 on the Norwegian shelf to Norsk Hydro Petroleum AS. The Norwegian Oil Company, DNO, became operator on June 3 last year. On September 30 2016, Aker BP took over as a new operator in the merger between BP and DNO.

Maersk Interceptor was delivered by Keppel Shipyard of Singapore in 2014 and is owned by Maersk and operated by Maersk Drilling Norway. The two wells will be the seventh and eighth well to be drilled under the license.
