StatoilHydro has been granted consent for the use of Island Constructor to install conductor pipes in exploration well 35/2-2.
StatoilHydro has applied for consent to conduct exploration drilling of well 35/2-2 in production licenses 318 and 269 with the Transocean Winner semisub.
In the first stage of this drilling activity, the company wants the construction vessel Island Constructor to install conductor pipes in the well.
Pursuant to Section 59 of the regulations relating to health, safety and the environment in the petroleum activities (the Framework Regulations), we have granted exemption from Section 17, third paragraph relating to health, safety and the environment in the petroleum activities regarding Acknowledgement of Compliance, for the purpose of installing conductor pipes in well 35/2-2, cf. Section 6, letter m of the Regulations relating to material and information in the petroleum activities.
From a risk-based approach, we accept such a simplified solution for this limited activity. It is assumed that the restrictions and compensating measures which are described in the information received from StatoilHydro are complied with and/or implemented.
The exemption is valid from April 10, 2009 to May 31, 2009.
