Dong to Carry Out Production Drilling at Trym Field

The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway granted Dong E&P Norge AS consent to carry out production drilling on the Trym field using the Maersk Giant jackup. Trym's Plan for Development and Operation was approved in March 2010. According to the plan, the field will be developed by a subsea installation tied-back to the Harald facility on the Danish side of the border. The approved consent applies to the drilling of production wells, and according to Dong's application for consent, the drilling activity has an expected duration of 216 days. The Trym gas/condensate field is located in the far south of the North Sea, just 2 miles (3 kilometers) from the border of Denmark in a water depth of 213 feet (65 meters). DONG operates the field, holding a 50% interest.
