North Energy has contributed to the establishment of a new partnership for Norwegian production
licence 510. Maersk Oil becomes the new operator with a 50 per cent holding and with partners
Edison (30 per cent) and North Energy (20 per cent).

PL 510 formed part of the 2008 awards in pre-defined areas (APA), and lies on the Halten Bank in
the Norwegian Sea close to several producing fields.

The decision has been taken to drill an exploration well in the licence, which adds a further firm
well to North Energy's drilling programme.
