Shell is the operator for production licence 373 S in the North Sea. Norway's Petroleum Safety Authority has given Norske Shell consent to drill exploration well 34/5-2 S. The purpose of the well is to investigate a prospect named "Tytteb?r".

The well is to be drilled in the following location: 61 43' 31.17'' N 02 39' 17.56'' E. This location is around 11 kms south-east of the Knarr field and 129 kms west of Flor?. Water depth at the site is 387 metres.

The drilling operations will begin between June and August 2018 and are expected to last for 92 days if hydrocarbons are proved, and 58 days if the well is dry.

Drilling is to be carried out using the Scarabeo 8 mobile drilling facility. This is a semi-submersible drilling facility of the Moss CS50 MKII type, operated by Saipem Norge. It was built in Russia and Italy and commissioned in 2012. The facility is classified by DNV GL and registered in the Bahamas.

Scarabeo 8 was issued with an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) by the PSA in May 2012.
