OMV to drill Barents Sea well using Transocean Barents rig

OMV Norge has received consent to carry out exploration drilling of well 7324/7-2 in production licence 537 in the Barents Sea using the Transocean Barents semi-submersible drilling rig.

 

Water depth at the site, offshore Norway, is 418 metres. Drilling is planned to begin in March 2014, with a duration of around 52 days, depending on whether a discovery is made.

Transocean Barents (formerly Aker Barents) is a 6th-generation semi-submersible drilling facility of the H-6e type. The facility was built at the Aker Stord yard in Norway and was completed in 2009.

Transocean Barents is owned and operated by Transocean Norway, with head offices in Stavanger.
