Wintershall to use Vega facilities

The Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) Norway has given Wintershall Norge AS consent to use the facilities on the Vega field in connection with the company’s taking over of the operatorship from Statoil.

A change of operator entails an application for consent to use the facilities. The PSA says that this is because consent is an expression of the agency’s confidence that the operating company is able to assume responsibility for operations in a proper manner and in compliance with the regulations; it is primarily based on the agency’s assessment of relevant aspects of the company’s management system.

Vega lies due north of the Fram field in the northern part of the North Sea. Water depth is 370 metres. The field consists of three separate gas and condensate occurrences: 35/8-1, 35/8-2 Vega and 35/11-2 Vega Sør. A combined PDO for Vega and Vega Sør was approved by the authorities in June 2007. The field has been developed using three subsea templates tied back to the Gjøa field processing facility.

The PSA has now given Wintershall Norge AS consent to use the facilities on the Vega field.
