Norway's oil and gas firm Equinor plans to drill a record five exploration wells off Britain, including four-operated wells, the company said on Thursday.

The campaign includes a well to appraise Equinor's Verbier discovery, currently estimated to hold between 25 and 130 million barrels of oil equivalents, the company added.
