PSA: Green light to Statoil for North Sea well drilling

Statoil has received consent from the Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) Norway to carry out exploration drilling of well 15/6-13 in the North Sea. 

Statoil is the operator for production licences 029B and 303 in block 15/6 in the central North Sea.

According to the PSA, Statoil is to drill well 15/6-13 Gina Krog East 3, to investigate the find’s potential.

Expected start-up is April 2015 with a duration of approx. 50 days, depending on whether a discovery is made.

The well will be drilled with Songa Trym, a semi-submersible drilling rig of the Aker H-3 type, built at Aker Verdal in 1976. Major improvements to the facility were made in 2012. Songa Trym is operated by Songa Management AS of Stavanger. It is registered in the Norwegian register of shipping and classified by DVN GL.

Due to its change of ownership, Songa Trym received a new Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) from the PSA in February 2013.
