Det norske to use ‘Transocean Winner’ for Volund drilling
Det norske oljeselskap ASA has received consent to use the Transocean Winner semi-submersible drilling rig for production drilling and completion on the Volund field.
Volund is an oil field in the central North Sea around 10 kilometers south of the Alvheim field.
Water depth in the area is 120-130 meters. The field has been developed using a subsea facility tied back to the Alvheim FPSO production vessel, with three horizontal wells.
The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway has now granted Det norske oljeselskap ASA consent for drilling operations in compliance with the company’s application.
