Norway’s state-owned energy giant Equinor has secured a drilling permit from the country’s authorities for an appraisal well in the North Sea off Norway. The drilling work is expected to be carried out using one of Odfjell Drilling’s rigs.
Norwegian state-owned energy giant Equinor on Friday announced a long-term gas sales agreement with its Polish counterpart PGNiG, which will result in the strengthening of the energy security of the latter.
Norwegian oil and gas player Vår Energi has secured two types of permits from the country’s authorities for two exploration wells located in the Barents Sea off Norway. These wells will be drilled using a Transocean-owned rig.
Even though Norway recorded a slight increase in gas production in August 2022 compared to the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate’s predictions, this is still lower than the figures from last month. On the other hand, the oil output fell behind the NPD’s predictions but is higher than the figures from July 2022.
The Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy has received offers for production licences from 26 companies for further exploration activity on the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS) as part of the Award in Pre-Defined Areas 2022 (APA 2022).
