Aker BP secures nod to drill new Alvheim well with Deepsea Stavanger rig

Norwegian oil and gas company Aker BP has received an approval to use Deepsea Stavanger semi-submersible drilling rig to drill well 4/6-B-6 on the Alvheim field, off Norway.

Aker BP is the operator of the Alvheim field, which is an oil and gas field in the central part of the North Sea, west of Heimdal and close to the boundary with the UK sector. Water depth in the area is approximately 124 meters.

Alvheim is developed with a floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel and subsea wells. The Vilje, Volund, and Bøyla fields are also tied back to the FPSO.

The consent to use the rig was granted by the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway.

Deepsea Stavanger is a semi-submersible mobile drilling facility of the GVA 7500 type, built in South Korea in 2010. It is owned and operated by Odfjell Drilling.
