Norway: Statoil Gets Green Light to Use Ocean Vanguard in North Sea

Statoil has received consent to use the Ocean Vanguard mobile facility in the northern part of the North Sea.

The consent relates to drilling of three production wells on Visund Sør. The plan is to partially complete all three wells, 34/8-V-4 BY1H/BY2H, 34/8-V-3 H, 34/8-V-1 BY1H/BY2H, with Ocean Vanguard.

Visund Sør is located approx. nine kilometres southwest of the Visund field, and approx. 125 kilometres from land, Værlandet in Askvoll, Sogn og Fjordane.

The earliest possible start date for the operation on Visund Sør is in the beginning of August 2011. The operation has an expected duration of 300 days.

Ocean Vangard is operated by Diamond Offshore with operations offices in Stavanger and with technical and operational support from the company’s offices in Aberdeen.

The facility is registered in the Marshall Islands with Det Norske Veritas as classification society.

Ocean Vanguard was built in 1982 and received an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) from the PSA in July 2004.
