STAVANGER -- StatoilHydro will drill its first offshore prospect as an operator in Canada at the Mizzen prospect off the east coast of Newfoundland and Labrador. The company has secured Transocean's Henry Goodrich rig for the operation.

"The Flemish Pass basin is a new and almost unexplored area on Canada's east coast," says Johan K. Mikkelsen, head of StatoilHydro's offshore business in Canada. "We are already participating in production from the Terra Nova and Hibernia fields and we have learned a lot from our partners in the 12 years we have been in Canada, and now look forward to preparing for our own drilling operations here."
