In December 2014, P2170 License (Blocks 20/5b and 21/1d) in the Central North Sea was awarded in the 28th Seaward Licensing Round. In August 2016, Equinor (formerly Statoil) joined as the operator. As a result of an exploration well drilled to the Verbier prospect in 2017, a certain amount of oil was discovered. To evaluate some uncertainties such as the size of the reservoir, an appraisal well is planned to be drilled in 2019. The equity of the ownership is Equinor 70%, Jersey Oil & Gas 18% and CIECO V&C (UK) 12%.
