PSA grants Statoil facilities

Statoil has received consent to use pipelines and subsea production facilities on the Åsgard field.

Statoil is the operator of Åsgard in the central Norwegian Sea, in 200 - 300 m of water. Åsgard comprises finds 6506/12-1 Smørbukk, 6506/12-3 Smørbukk Sør and 6507/11-1 Midgard.

The field has been developed using subsea completed wells tied back to a production and storage vessel, Åsgard A, which produces and stores oil, and a floating semi-submersible facility, Åsgard B, which processes gas and condensate.

The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway has now granted consent to use pipelines and subsea production facilities in accordance with Statoil's application.
