Talisman: Jack-up rig Maersk Giant to work on Varg field

Talisman Energy AS (TENAS) has received consent from the Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) Norway to use the Mærsk Giant jack-up rig for well plugging on the Varg field in the Norwegian North Sea.

Talisman will use Mærsk Giant for plugging wells 15/12-A-2, A-4, A-9, A-11, A-12, A-13, A-15 and A-16 on the Varg field.

The company has allocated up to 153 days for the activity, which will start in mid-May 2015. Water depth at the site is 367 metres.

Varg is an oil field located south of Sleipner East in the central sector of the North Sea. The field will be produced using the Petrojarl Varg production vessel, which has integrated oil storage and is tied to the Varg A well-head facility.

The wells will be drilled by Mærsk Giant which is a jack-up drilling rig owned and operated by the A.P. Møller-Mærsk Group.

It was built in Japan by Hitachi and completed in 1986.
