Drilling is planned to start in February 2018, with a duration of around 47 days, depending on whether a discovery is made.

The drilling location's geographical coordinates will be:

58° 40' 16.11" N

02° 14' 25.30" E

The well is to be drilled by COSLInnovator, which is a semi-submersible drilling facility constructed at the Yantai Raffles Shipyard in China. The facility was issued with an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) by the PSA in 2012.
