ConocoPhillips gains nod for jack-up Maersk Gallant use

The Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) Norway has granted ConocoPhillips consent to use the Maersk Gallant drilling rig for plugging and abandoning a production well at Eldfisk 2/7 A in southern North Sea.

Mærsk Gallant is a jack-up drilling rig, built at Far East Levingston Shipbuilding (FELS) in Singapore in 1993. The rig is operated by Maersk Contractors Norge A/S. It received Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) in August 2002.

The PSA has now granted consent to use Maersk Gallant at Eldfisk in accordance with ConocoPhillips’ application.

Eldfisk

Eldfisk is an oilfield that also contains some gas. The field was discovered in 1970, approved for development in 1975 and started production in 1979.

Eldfisk is the second largest of four producing fields in the Greater Ekofisk Area and one of the largest on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS). The field is located in block 2/7, about 16 kilometers south of Ekofisk, not far from the UK and Danish shelves. The water depth in the area is just under 70 meters.
