Norway's Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) said it has given Equinor the green light to perform exploration drilling in block 34/4 in the Snorre field in the North Sea.

Equinor will drill the 34/4-17 S well at Statfjord Kile using Odfjell Drilling's Deepsea Stavanger, a sixth generation GVA 7500 design semi-submersible. Water depth at the site is 360 meters.

Equinor is operator and holds 31% ownership in production license 057. Its partners are Petoro (30%), Wintershal Dea (24.5%), Idemitsu Petroleum (9.6%) and Vår Energi (4.9).

The Snorre field, spanning blocks 34/4 and 34/7 in the Tampen area of the Norwegian North Sea, has been producing oil and gas since 1992. The field consists of the platforms Snorre A and Snorre B, and extensive underwater production systems.
