Statoil Gets PSA Nod for Alve Completion

The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway has granted Statoil consent to perform drilling and completion operations on the Alve field, and well intervention operations on the Urd field using the West Alpha semisub. The consent includes drilling and completing well 6507/3-L-4 AH on the Alve field and well intervention in well 6608/10-J-2 H on Urd.

Drilling on Alve is scheduled for mid-February 2011 at the earliest, and the operation should last for about 60 to 75 days, according to the PSA. Following completion of the Alve well, Statoil will then use West Alpha for well intervention on Urd. This operation should last for about 16 days. Both fields are located in the Norwegian Sea and are operated by Statoil.
