ConocoPhillips to Use Deepsea Trym on Eldfisk Field

The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate has granted ConocoPhillips Norge consent for use of the semisub Deepsea Trym as a flotel on Eldfisk in the Norwegian Sector of the North Sea. The rig will meet the company's requirements for expanded bed capacity due to drilling of five wells on Eldfisk at the same time as extensive modifications and upgrades take place on the field.

Deepsea Trym will be located with a bridge connection to Eldfisk 2/7E. The Odfjell-owned semisub has received the NPD's Acknowledgment of Compliance in June of this year.
