(Stavanger) Paladin Resources Norge has completed drilling of the sandstone Hummer prospect in the Norwegian North Sea, just north of the Blane field. Well 1/2-2 was drilled by the jack-upMaersk Giant to a depth of 3,434 m into Late Cretaceous rocks; there were indications of hydrocarbons at around 3,145 m, in Early Tertiary sandstone.

The rig was due to move to block 15/12 to drill an appraisal well in Production License 038 on the Varg South discovery.
