Maersk Gallant to drill two wells near Ekofisk

The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway has given its approval for Statoil to use the Maersk Gallant jack-up in the North Sea.

Statoil will use the drilling rig to drill wells 2/4-22 S and 2/4-22 A in production licence 146.

The wells are in the southern part of the North Sea, 15 km north of the Ekofisk field and around 260 km from the nearest land at Lista. Water depth at the site is approx. 67 metres.

Drilling is planned to begin in June/July 2014, with a duration of around 189 days, depending on whether a discovery is made.

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