Norway's PSA Oks Modifications for Tune Sor at Oseberg D

StatoilHydro has been granted consent for the use of the Tune Sor seabed well with associated pipeline and control cable, as well as for carrying out modifications for Tune Sor at the Oseberg D facility.

The development of Tune Sor is part of StatoilHydro's business plan for resource exploitation and infrastructure use in the Oseberg/Tune area.
Tune Sor is a continuation of the Tune Nord project which was stopped after the field proved to be dry. The Tune Sor satellite well will produce for and be controlled from Oseberg D.

Modification of the processing facility at Oseberg D to include production from Tune Sor is of limited scope. Production start-up from Tune Sor will be in July 2009, dependent on progress in drilling, completion and testing. Drilling of gas and condensate producing well A-21 AH was planned for completion in May 2009.

The well has been drilled by the Songa Delta (formerly Deepsea Delta) semisub.
