PGNiG Upstream Norway started drilling an exploration well in licence area PL838 (the Shrek prospect) on the Norwegian Continental Shelf, for the 1st time in the role of the operator.

It is the 1st exploration well in this licence area, located in the vicinity of the Skarv oil and gas field, in which PGNiG holds a 12% interest.

 

‘The main objective of our operations in Norway is to scale up our own production of gas in the region. Now we also have the opportunity to develop our competences and expertise as an operator, which proves the trust our Norwegian partners place in PGNiG,’ said Piotr Woźniak, President of PGNiG.

 

The sea at the location of the well is 358 m deep. The Shrek prospect is located at a depth of approximately 2,300 m  from the seabed.

 

The well is drilled using Deepsea Nordkapp, a 6th generation semi-submersible rig, one of the most advanced rigs capable of work in extreme offshore conditions. Almost all drilling operations on the rig are computer-controlled.
