Statoil Gets OK for Norne Development Work

Statoil has secured consent to use the Transocean Polar Pioneer for production drilling and completion on subsea wells on the Norne field.

The Norne oil field is part of production license 128 and is situated in the Norwegian Sea about 80 kilometers north of Heidrun.

Statoil is the operator of the field and the other licensees are Eni Norge AS, Norsk Hydro Produksjon AS and Petoro AS.

The consent relates to production drilling and completion of two subsea wells in block 6608/10. The purpose of the activity is to increase recovery on the Norne field by drilling an additional well and to improve the pressure support on Svale by sidetracking one of the injectors.

The Polar Pioneer is operated by Transocean. The facility received the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway's Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) in May 2004.
