Norway PSA Gives Statoil Consent to Use Stena Don on Norne

The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) has granted Statoil ASA its consent for use of semisub Stena Don on the Norne field, production license 128.

On 1 July 2003, the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate granted Statoil ASA its consent for the use of the Stena Don for drilling on Norne.

The new consent means that Statoil also can drill side-tracks in well 6608/10 B-4CH and carry out intervention work in well E-4H.

The Stena Don installation has largely been involved in drilling and completion in this area since it started its contract with Statoil at the beginning of 2002.

Statoil has also used the rig to drill some exploration wells in the same area.

Stena Don is owned by Stena Don AS and received the authorities' Acknowledgement of compliance (AoC) on March 19, 2002.
