Aker Barents commenced drilling operations for Det norske on well 25/1-11 Storklakken in PL 460 on December 31, 2009.
The aim of these operations is to discover oil that can be tied back to a future installation on the Frøy field, and thus improve Frøy project economics.
The Aker Barents semisub has now completed the top section of the well and will go to shore to assemble six hydraulic cylinders. According to the rig contract, Det norske will not pay rig dayrates during this repair.
As a result of the yard-stay, Det norske expects that the Storklakken well will be completed in mid-March, compared to early February.
