Statoil Gets Consent to Use Songa Encourage for Well Activities Off Norway

Statoil has received consent from Petroleum Safety Authority Norway to use the Songa Encourage (midwater semisub) mobile drilling facility to perform well activities on the Norne and Alve fields, located offshore Norway.

The activities include drilling wells for production or injection, well overhaul and other intervention work, as well as plugging.

Statoil is the operator of the Norne field in the Norwegian Sea, west of Mo i Rana in Nordland county. The field has been developed using a floating production and storage unit, tied to the well templates on the seabed. 

The Alve field, which is 10 miles southwest of Norne, and other satellite fields, are tied back to the Norne facility.
