Equinor and its highly-motivated partners in this year's Rover Sor discovery offshore Norway are zooming back to the area imminently to drill two more exploration wells.

Rover Sor was completed as an oil and gas discovery in early February in Block PL923 in the Norwegian North Sea near the giant Troll field.

The same permit also contains the Rover Nord discovery, and the ownership group of Equinor, DNO, Petoro and Wellesley Petroleum are keen to generate a commercial development as soon as possible that will also combine other nearby discoveries.
