Norway's Petroleum Safety Authority has given Wintershall Dea consent for the exploration drilling of two wells in the Norwegian Sea. The wells 6604/5-2 S and 6604/6-1 will be drilled in production licence PL 894 and will test the Balderbra and Gullstjerne prospects.

The geographical coordinates for 6604/5-2 S are: 66 36' 33.482" North 04 35' 34.304" East. Water depth at the site is 1241 metres.

The geographical coordinates for 6604/6-1 are: 66 36' 15.3485" North 04 53' 56.3433" East. Water depth at the site is 1161 metres.

Drilling is scheduled to start in December 2019 and is expected to last for at least 44 days for well 6604/5-2 S and at least 51 days for well 6604/6-1.

The wells are to be drilled 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 put into service 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.
