PSA gives nod to Shell to plug well at Draugen (Norway)

Shell has received consent from the Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) Norway to use semi-submersible drilling rig Transocean Barents for well plugging at Draugen, in the Norwegian Sea. 

Draugen is an oil field in the Norwgeian Sea in 250 metres of water. A/S Norske Shell (Shell) is the field’s operator. Production on the field began in October 1993. The field has been developed using a fixed concrete platform with an integrated deck. Reserves in the vicinity are produced by subsea wells tied back to this platform.

The PSA says that Shell has now received consent to use the Transocean Barents drilling rig to plug subsea well 6407/9-3-A53 permanently. According to the PSA, the work is expected to last for 71 days.

Transocean Barents is a semi-submersible drilling rig of the Aker H-6e type. It was built at Aker Kværner Stord in 2009. It is registered in the Marshall Islands and classified by DNV GL.

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