Statoil Gets Nod to Use Songa Delta for Drilling at Svalin C

The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) has given approval to Statoil for the use of Songa Delta rig for drilling and completion works at Svalin C field.

The consent applies to drilling and completion at Svalin C of wells 25/11-H-4 H / AH / BH and 25/11-H-3 H / AH.

The planned start-up is December 2013 with an expected duration of 220 days. The Songa Delta semi-submersible drilling rig is owned by Songa Offshore and operated by Odfjell Drilling.

Songa Delta is a third-generation mobile drilling facility of the Ocean Ranger type, completed by Rauma Repola in Finland in 1981. The facility has been modified several times and is registered in Norway, with Det Norske Veritas (DNV) as the classification society. Songa Delta received the PSA’s Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) in June 2009.

Svalin

The Svalin field is located in the Norwegian part of the North Sea about six kilometres southwest of the Grane platform, at a water depth of 125 metres. Recoverable reserves are estimated at approximately 75 million barrels of oil (corresponding to 12 million standard cubic metres). The reserves are about equally split between the two structures on the field: Svalin C and Svalin M.
Svalin C was discovered in 1992 and is scheduled to start producing during the summer of 2014.
