PSA: Green light for two wells in Norwegian Sea

VNG Norge (VNG) has received consent from the Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) Norway to drill two exploration wells 6406/12-4 S and 6406/12-4 A in the Norwegian Sea using the Transocean Arctic rig. 

VNG is the operator for production licence 586 in block 6406/12 in the Norwegian Sea. The field is around 83 kilometres from the Norwegian coast at Frøya and 61.4 kilometres south-west of Draugen. Water depth at the site is 319 metres.

According to the PSA, drilling is scheduled to begin in June 2015 and estimated to last 52 days. In the event of a discovery, the activity may last a further 84 days for well testing.

Drilling is to be carried out using Transocean Arctic, a semi-submersible drilling rig owned and operated by Transocean. It was built by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries in Japan in 1987, and substantially upgraded in 2004. It was issued with an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) by the PSA in July 2004.
