A final investment decision (FID) has been confirmed by BlueNord regarding the drilling of the Harald East Middle Jurassic (HEMJ) well in Harald East area in the Danish section of the North Sea. Drilling is scheduled to start mid-2024.

Drilling works for HEMJ are calculated to cost BlueNord US$28m. Once complete, the well is expected to provide eight million barrels of oil equivalent (mmboe), 80% of which will be natural gas.

If successful, BlueNord has stated that the drilling campaign should be over and production start by the end of the year.
