According to the newspaper "Nordlys" (in Tromsø, Norway) Norsk Hydro may have made a oil discovery in the Carboniferous-Permian succession on the Loppa High, south-western Barents Sea. The site is still being drilled, and testing will be commenced in the weeks to come.

The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (www.npd.no) report that well 7220/6-1 on the Loppa High, with target in Carboniferous-Permian carbonates, contained a residual oil column of 120 m. Indications of hydrocarbons in the upper part of the target succession were detected, but they are not producable.
