Archer in Heimdal plug & abandon ops for Statoil

Archer, a global supplier of drilling and well services, has started operations to permanently plug and abandon (PP&A) 12 gas wells on Statoil’s Heimdal platform in the Norwegian North Sea.

John Lechner, President North Sea and Executive Vice President, Archer, said: “I am very pleased with the excellent work by both the onshore and offshore Archer teams in commissioning, mobilising, interfacing and installing the Archer Topaz MDR for the Statoil Heimdal PP&A campaign.

“The project being on schedule and budget, with a spotless QHSE record, is quite an achievement. Now we will focus on continuing the same standard of performance for the PP&A well campaign to demonstrate Archer’s capability to provide safe, reliable and cost-effective plug and abandonment services to the offshore platform market.”

The Archer Topaz MDR follows the design of Archer’s first modular rig, the Archer Emerald. Archer’s MDRs are designed to stand alone.

According to Archer, the flexibility of the Archer Topaz made it well-suited for deployment on the Heimdal field center where, in addition to the ongoing PP&A activity, installation upgrades are underway to keep the field operational as a gas processing and distribution hub until 2030.
