Norske Shell has received consent to use two subsea wells on Draugen field.
Shell is the operator of Draugen oil field, located at Haltenbanken in the Norwegian Sea, around 150 kilometers north of Kristiansund.
Production from the field began in 1993.
In 2013, Shell initiated a programme to drill four subsea wells on the field. Two of these came on stream in 2014.
The Petroleum Safety Authority has given Shell consent to commission the last two wells, designated G2 and G3.
The consent also covers underwater equipment, subsea pumps and equipment on board the Draugen facility linked to these wells.
