OMV gains nod to drill Hades & Iris well with Deepsea Bergen rig

OMV Norge, a Norwegian subsidiary of the Austrian oil firm OMV, has received consent from the Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) to drill an exploration well in the Norwegian Sea with the Deepsea Bergen drilling rig.

The exploration well 6506/11-10 is located in production license 644, in a prospect named Hades & Iris, where OMV Norge is the operator.

The PSA said on Tuesday that the drilling is scheduled to begin on or after December 1, 2017, with a duration of around 142 days, depending on whether a discovery is made. Water depth at the site is around 342 meters.

The well will be drilled by the Deepsea Bergen semi-submersible drilling rig of the Aker H-3.2 type, built at Aker Verdal in 1983. The rig is owned and operated by Odfjell Drilling, classified by DNV GL, and registered in Norway. It was issued with an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) by the PSA in December 2001.

OMV awarded the contract for one firm high-pressure high-temperature well (HPHT well) off Norway to the Deepsea Bergen rig back in April.

In September, Averøy Industripark industrial area was chosen by the rig owner as the place to store the Deepsea Bergen ahead of the assignment with OMV.
