Statoil receives consent to use West Epsilon

Gudrun is 50km north of the Sleipner Øst and Sleipner Vest fields. Water depth is around 110m. Gudrun has been developed using a facility with a steel jacket and first stage processing. It is tied to Sleipner A through two pipelines, one for oil and one for rich gas.

Statoil formerly received consent to use West Epsilon for drilling and completion of well 15/3 on the Gudrun field and has now received consent to drill the remaining sections of well 15/3 – A- 14.

The geographical coordinates are:

  • 58o 50' 42.87" N
  • 01o 44' 37.44" E

The PSA has now granted Statoil consent to use the West Epsilon mobile drilling facility for these activities. West Epsilon is operated by North Atlantic Drilling, formerly known as Seadrill Offshore AS.

The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway issued an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) for West Epsilon on 14 February 2003.
