It stated that the operator's preliminary volumetric estimates of the size of the discovery were between 19 and 126m barrels of recoverable oil equivalent.

Graham Stewart, Chief Executive of Faroe Petroleum, said: "We are very pleased to announce this gas condensate discovery on the secondary target of this Norwegian Sea exploration well.
