StatoilHydro Gets Go Ahead to Use Deepsea Delta
The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway has granted StatoilHydro the approval to use Odfjell's semisub Deepsea Delta for the drilling and completion of two wells (30/9-L-51H/AH and 30/9-L-53H/AH) in the Oseberg Delta field.
Currently working in the North Sea on the Vilje field for Statoil, Deepsea Delta's arrival at Oseberg Delta field is contingent on it finishing that project. Once startup has commenced, the job is expected to last 220 days.
The semisub received the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway's Acknowledgement of Compliance in February 2004. Deepsea Delta has a rated water depth of 3,000 feet and a drilling depth of 25,000 feet.
Oseberg Delta is located about 150 kilometers west of Bergen and 8.5 kilometers southwest of the Oseberg field center. The water depth where the drilling will take place is 102 meters.
Development of Oseberg Delta will include a subsea facility with four well slots that will be tied back to the Oseberg D facility by two pipelines.
