StatoilHydro Gets Green Light to Use Scarabeo 5 on Kristin

StatoilHydro has received consent from the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway to use the Scarabeo 5 semisub to drill a pilot well on the Q template on the Kristin field.

StatoilHydro has used the Scarabeo 5 for drilling and completion of wells on the Kristin field since 2003.

The company currently has consent to complete drilling activities related to the subsea templates N, P, S and R.

The new consent is an extension of the existing consent and applies to drilling on the Q template.
