Norsk Hydro Applies for Extension of Use of Deepsea Delta at Oseberg & Tune

Norsk Hydro Produksjon AS has applied for an extension of former consents for use of the Deepsea Delta. The extension applies to production drilling, completion and well workovers at Oseberg, Oseberg Vestflanken and Tune. We have issued an extended consent, as applied for, on July 27, 2005.

The activity entails replacing an Xmas tree at gas well 30/6-B-51 H (link to the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate's fact pages) due to an internal leakage, drilling and completion of a production well at the Tune Field and drilling and completion of three oil-producing wells at Oseberg Vestflanken.

The rig is owned and operated by Odfjell Drilling. It was modified several times and upgraded the last time in 1998. The facility was issued with an Acknowledgment of Compliance in February 2004.
