ConocoPhillips Secures Maersk Gallant for Repairs at Ekofisk

ConocoPhillips has been granted consent for the use of the Maersk Gallant jackup on the Ekofisk field.

The consent applies to use of the facility's helicopter deck and living quarters in connection with repairs following the vessel Big Orange XVIII's collision with the Ekofisk facility 2/4 W on Jun. 8.

The collision caused damage to 2/4-W (facility, bridge and well equipment).

Maersk Gallant will be located to the the east of Ekofisk 2/4-M. According to plan, the rig will be used from mid-June 2009 to mid-July 2009.
