StatoilHydro to Drill Tune Field Well with Deepsea Delta
StatoilHydro has received consent to use the semisub Deepsea Delta for drilling and completion of well 30/8-A-21 H AH on the Tune field.
The well to be drilled and completed prior to production is located on Tune Sor, west of Bergen. Water depth at the site is 92 meters. The plan is to start drilling on November 1, 2008, and the activity is expected to last 170 days.
The Deepsea Delta is a third generation, Ocean Ranger-type semisubmersible drilling facility, commissioned at Rauma Repola (Finland) in 1981. The facility has subsequently undergone a number of upgrades.
The facility, which is owned and operated by Odfjell Drilling, received the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway's Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) in February 2004.
