Repsol to use own MOB boat for Gyda field contingencies

Spanish oil company Repsol has received consent from the Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) for a change to the contingency plan for Gyda field in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.

The Gyda field is located in the southern North Sea between Ula and Ekofisk. It has been developed using an integrated facility with a steel jacket in 66 meters of water.

As for the contingency planning, to date, Gyda has cooperated with BP (now AkerBP) by sharing an emergency response vessel between the Ula and Gyda facilities.

The Petroleum Safety Authority on Wednesday said that analyses have shown that “prudent emergency response can be provided by the Gyda field’s own MOB boat.”

In this respect, improvements have been made to the MOB boat in accordance with the recommendations in the analyses, and the PSA has granted Repsol consent for this change.

Repsol took over operatorship of the Gyda field through the acquisition of Talisman Energy in 2015. The field started producing in 1990. The Gyda oil field is named after the wife of Harold the Fair-haired remembered by medieval historians as the first King of Norway.
