Ross Offshore secures survey job with OMV Norge
Ross Offshore has secured a contract with OMV (Norge) to carry out a site survey on the PL 644 Iris/Hades discoveries to the Aasgard C pipeline route in the Norwegian Sea.
The Norwegian company will conduct a reconnaissance survey, as well as provide management expertise and a survey spread from Fugro.
Offshore operations are scheduled to commence in August.
The Iris/Hades discoveries are located on Haltenbanken in the Norwegian Sea in PL 644, PL 644 B and PL 644 C.
The first exploration well was drilled in 2018 and proved gas and condensate. The Iris appraisal well was drilled a year later and the Hades reservoir was appraised in 2020, which confirmed the presence of hydrocarbons in both reservoirs.
OMV (Norge) is the operator for PL 644/B/C with a 30% working interest, while the other licensees are Equinor with 40%, DNO Norge with 20% and Spirit Energy with 10%.
