Norsk Hydro to Use Transocean Winner on Tune

Norsk Hydro Produksjon AS has received consent from the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway to use the Transocean Winner to drill a top hole on well 30/8-A-21 H at Tune Sor.

The Transocean Winner received the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway's Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) in August 2006

Tune Sor is the third development phase for the Tune field. A single well, 30/8-A-21 H is to be drilled through a pre-existing satellite template. The plan does not entail penetration of hydrocarbon-bearing strata.

The activity is expected to last for approximately 20 days.

Drilling of the top hole sections is a preparation for connection of the satellite to Tune Main, which currently produces to the Oseberg Field Center.
