Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 10/6/2014, Location: Europe

Atlantic Petroleum is pleased to announce that drilling of the Ivory well (6707/10-3 S) in PL 528B has commenced.

Atlantic Petroleum Norge has a 9% working interest in PL 528B located in the Norwegian Sea. The licence is located adjacent to the Statoil-operated Aasta Hansteen field development which is due to come on stream in 2017.

The Ivory well is being drilled by the West Navigator drillship. The well is planned to drill to a total depth of around 4200 m TVD and operations are anticipated to take 60-90 days. This will be extended in the case of discovery.

The PL528 licence contains the Ivory prospect which is gas prone with Direct Hydrocarbon Indicator (DHI) support. Gross recoverable resources have been estimated to be 50- 230 mmboe for the main target. The licence also holds several other large prospects, some with DHI support.

Centrica Resources (Norge) is operator of the licence with an equity interest of 40%. Other licence partners are Statoil Petroleum 35%, Rocksource Exploration Norway 10%, Atlantic Petroleum Norge 9%* and Repsol Exploration Norge 6%*.

Ben Arabo, CEO, stated:
“We are very pleased to announce the spud of the Ivory well, our second well in Norway. As well as evaluating the main prospect, success at Ivory will significantly de-risk the other prospects and leads identified on the licence. This is Atlantic Petroleum’s fourth of four exploration wells in our planned 2014 drilling programme."
