Statoil Petroleum AS (Statoil) has received consent to use the new Floatel Superior mobile living quarters facility as a flotel at Njord Field in the Norwegian Sea.
The consent applies for the period 20 July – 10 December 2012. Floatel Superior will be used as a flotel during a period of particularly high activity on the Njord field.
Floatel Superior is a dynamically-positioned (DP-3) semi-submersible facility with a living quarters module aft and an open work deck forward. The flotel can accommodate 440 people in single cabins when operating on the Norwegian shelf.
The facility is a new construction which was delivered in March 2010 by Keppel FELS (Shipyard Road) in Singapore.
Floatel Superior is operated by Floatel International AB (FIAB) in Gothenburg, Sweden. Floatel International AB received the PSA’s Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) on 22 December 2010 for Floatel Superior.
