Drilling operations have kicked off on Chrysaor’s Jerv exploration well offshore Norway.

The well is in licence area 973 and is close to the maritime boundary with the UK North Sea.

Licence partner Okea said the COSL Innovator rig was working on the first of a two-well programme, which includes the Ilder well.

Chrysaor, as operator, hold a 50% stake in the licence, Okea has 30% and Petoro is on 20%.

The licence lies directly south of the Okea-operated Grevling and Storskrymten discoveries.

Okea said an early drill decision was taken in PL973 to accelerate identification of additional resources in the area to support these ongoing field development plans.

Andrew McCann, svp subsurface and wells at Okea, said: “The Jerv and Ilder wells are our first exploration wells since 2019 and we are excited to see what results they bring, especially as discovered resources may support further maturation of the Grevling project.

“We have a third exploration well to be drilled later in the year on PL1060 and we hope that together they will provide resources to build our asset base further.’’
