Wintershall Gets Green Light for LWI Ops on Maria Field
- Business & Finance
The Norwegian Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) have given Wintershall Norge consent to use LWI vessel Island Wellserver on the Maria field.
The consent applies to light well intervention work on the Maria field for well 6406/3-H-3H, which is in production licences 475BS and 475CS in the Norwegian Sea.
Maria is the first Wintershall own-operated field in Norway, which the company takes all the way from exploration, through development and to production.
The subsea Maria field in the Haltenbanken area of the Norwegian Sea is connected via subsea tiebacks to the Statoil-operated Kristin, Heidrun and Åsgard B production platforms.
Island Wellserver was built in 2008 at the Aker Langsten yard. The DNV GL-classed vessel is registered in Norway and given Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) by the PSA in April 2009.
