Statoil gets green light for Floatel Endurance rig on Gina Krog field

Norwegian offshore safety watchdog, the Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA), has given Statoil consent to use the semi-submersible accommodation and construction support rig , Floatel Endurance, on the Gina Krog field in the North Sea, offshore Norway.

Offshore Energy Today reported on Tuesday that the PSA gave Floatel International an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) for the Floatel Endurance, making it the 61st mobile facility with an AoC given by the PSA.

The Gina Krog field gig for Statoil will be the first commission on the Norwegian Continental Shelf for the Floatel Endurance.

The rig is equipped with Kongsberg Dynamic Positioning System, certified to DP3 class. Floatel Endurance accommodates 440 persons in single bed cabins and has large recreational areas. The vessel has a telescopic gangway for personnel to transfer between the vessel and the host installation.

A large helideck and two deck cranes to support logistical requirements. A large lay-down area as well as workshops on the main deck to support construction and storage activities.

It was built by Keppel FELS Shipyard in Singapore and delivered in 2015. Its length is 105 meters and has a breadth of 103 meters. Floatel Endurance is powered by six fresh water cooled diesel engines generating sets, 4 700 kW each and has six azimuth thrusters, 3 500 kW each.

The Gina Krog field is located 30 kilometers northwest of the Sleipner field and around 250 kilometers southwest of Stavanger, Norway. The development has an estimated 225 million barrels of oil and gas. Sanctioned in 2013, the Gina Krog development is expected to start producing oil and gas in early 2017.
