Statoil: ‘West Epsilon’ for Gudrun drilling

Statoil has received consent from the Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) Norway to use West Epsilon rig for production drilling on the Gudrun field located in the North Sea. 

Gudrun is 50 kilometres north of the Sleipner Øst and Sleipner Vest fields. Water depth is around 110 metres.

Gudrun has been developed using a facility with a steel jacket and first stage processing. It is tied to Sleipner A through two pipelines, one for oil and one for rich gas.

Statoil formerly received consent to use West Epsilon for drilling and completion of well 15/3 on the Gudrun field and has now received consent to drill the remaining sections of well 15/3 – A- 14.

Jack-up West Epsilon

The PSA has now granted Statoil consent to use the West Epsilon jack-up drilling rig for these activities. West Epsilon is operated by North Atlantic Drilling, formerly known as Seadrill Offshore AS.

The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway issued an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) for West Epsilon on February 14, 2003.
