The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway announces consent to use Rowan Norway to drill production wells on Ekofisk 2/4-B

Friday, Jan 11, 2013

ConocoPhillips has received consent to use the Rowan Norway mobile drilling facility to drill three new production wells on Ekofisk 2/4-B

ConocoPhillips will drill new production wells on Ekofisk 2/4-B in the form of sidetracks from existing wells. At the same time, the old wells will be permanently abandoned.

The plan is to start the drilling programme at the end of December 2012, which will last until mid-2014.

The drilling will be carried out with the Rowan Norway mobile drilling facility, which will be located next to the 2/4 B facility while the work is ongoing.

Rowan Norway (photo) is a jack-up drilling facility built in 2011 at Keppel Fels in Singapore. It was registered in Panama and classified in DnV.

The facility received an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) from the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) on 21 December 2012.

The PSA has now granted ConocoPhillips consent in accordance with the application.
