“Ramboll looks very much forward to start working with Petoro and we are determined to deliver the best possible results. I hope this study will become a stepping stone for future cooperation as I am confident that our multidisciplinary consultancy approach holds a lot of value for this market”, says Gro Baade-Mathiesen, Regional Director Ramboll Oil & Gas Norway.
Recommendations for facility concept
The main purpose of the Snorre study is to provide qualified recommendations to Petoro for the concept of the facility, if a wellhead platform becomes the preferred solution to ensure drilling of wells under the Snorre 2040 project.
