Norwegian energy group Equinor ASA said Wednesday that it has been offered two operated production licences in the 25th licensing round in the Barents Sea.

Norway's Ministry of Petroleum and Energy has offered Equinor production licences PL1133 and PL1134 in the Hoop area in the Barents Sea, a location that will enable tie-in of any discoveries to the Wisting field in the Barent Sea, it said.

"This award brings opportunities for exploring volumes near planned infrastructure," said Jez Averty, senior vice president for subsurface at Equinor.
