Statoil to Use Deepsea Bergen for Work on Heidrun License

Statoil will use Odfjell's semisub, Deepsea Bergen for drilling and completion of water injectors in the Heidrun License. The rig carried out production drilling, completion and exploration drilling this past year for Statoil on the Sigyn, Beta West and Lerke prospects.

Planned start-up of drilling on Heidrun is about November 7th, and drilling and completion of the three new wells is estimated to take about 40 days.
