Drilling Activity Summary


DNO Norge spud exploration well #1-Gomez in offshore Norway’s PL006C license. The planned depth of the well is approximately 3,300 m and is targeting Paleocene formations. The well is one of three exploration wells scheduled in 2021. The first well on the prospect, #1 Rover Nord, encountered a possible commercial discovery. Following #1-Gomez, the third exploration well, #1-Mugnetind, is expected to spud in the fourth quarter of this year. Pre-drill estimates range from 26 MMbbl to 80 MMbbl of oil equivalent. The well is close to existing infrastructure, including the Tor and Ekofisk complexes. Oslo-based DNO Norge holds a 65% operated interest in the license with the balance held by Aker BP.
