Statoil has received consent from the Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) to use Songa Offshore’s semi-sub rig Songa Delta for well plugging at Tune field, offshore Norway.
The Tune field is a gas and condensate field in the North Sea, around 10 kilometers west of the Oseberg field center. Statoil is the field’s operator. Water depth at the site is around 95 meters.
The field has been developed using a subsea template and a satellite well tied back to Oseberg. Production at Tune began in 2002.
Statoil has now received consent to use the Songa Delta drilling rig to plug well 30/8-A-12 on the field permanently.
According to the PSA, the activity is scheduled to begin in early September 2016 and is estimated to last 24 days.
Songa Offshore-operated Songa Delta was issued with an Acknowledgment of Compliance (AoC) by the PSA in November 2012.
