StatoilHydro Taps Deepsea Bergen for Production Drilling in North Sea
StatoilHydro has been granted consent to use the Deepsea Bergen semisub for production drilling on the Heidrun, Norne and Åsgard fields.
StatoilHydro has a contract period of three years for Deepsea Bergen. The consent is valid for three years with planned start-up at the beginning of July 2009.
Production drilling on the Heidrun field includes activities such as plugging and abandoning, drilling, completion and well interventions.
Two well activities are planned on the Heidrun field in 2009, and the activity will continue in 2010.
Norne Main field
Deepsea Bergen will drill and complete four new production wells on the M-frame. In addition, the facility will be used for sidetrack drilling of and well maintenance on the field, with a planned water injector in 2011.
For Asgard and Norne Satellites the Deepsea Bergen will be assigned well commissions during the contract period.
This will also depend on the ongoing well allocation processes, where the main objective of the operations on Asgard and Norne Satellites is to maintain the production levels and increase the recovery rates in the production licenses.
The activity on the Asgard field may also include well clean-up and well testing.
