Lundin Norway has lined up semi-submersible rig West Bollsta to drill a further exploration well early next year near its Solveig discovery off the country.

The 16/4-13S probe is set to be drilled in Lundin-operated production licence 359 in January at the earliest to target the so-called Synrift prospect, with an option to drill a sidetrack at the Western Wedge prospect plus further options for two additional sidetracks at each well.
