Lundin Petroleum AB ("Lundin Petroleum") through its wholly owned subsidiary Lundin Norway AS is pleased to announce the commencement of the drilling of the first development well on the Brynhild field in PL148, located in the Norwegian North Sea.

The Brynhild field is located adjacent to the Norway-United Kingdom border, some 210 km from the Norwegian mainland. The development of Brynhild involves the drilling of 4 development wells with a subsea tie-back to the Haewene Brim FPSO located at the Shell Pierce development in the United Kingdom sector of the North Sea, 38 km south of the field.

The wells will be drilled using the jack-up rig Maersk Guardian and drilling operations are expected to continue until Q2 2014.

The template with the manifold and the 38 km production pipeline have successfully been installed. Topside modification work on the Haewene Brim FPSO is scheduled to commence in July. First production from the Brynhild field is expected in Q4 2013.

The estimated gross reserves are approximately 23 million barrels of oil equivalents (MMboe) with gross peak production of approximately 12,000 barrels of oil equivalents per day (boepd). The hydrocarbons will be processed at the Haewene Brim FPSO before being offloaded for further transportation.

Lundin Petroleum has a 90 percent working interest in the Brynhild field and is the operator. Talisman Energy Norge is the partner with 10 percent interest.
