Well 35/9-13 will be drilled from the Songa Enabler drilling facility after completing the drilling of wildcat well 7317/9-1 for Statoil in production license 718.

The drilling program for well 35/9-13 relates to the drilling of a wildcat well in production license 682.

The area in this license consists of the central and northwestern parts of block 35/9. The well will be drilled about 10km northeast of the Gjøa field.
