OSLO, Norway – Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) Norway has sanctioned two well campaigns in the Norwegian North Sea.

Statoil Petroleum has consent to use the semisubmersible COSL Promoter for drilling, completion, workover, intervention, and plugback of production wells on the Troll field.

The wells to be drilled – 31/2-N-14 and 31/2-K-13 – are on production licenses 054 and 085. Water depths range from 333-377 m (1,092-1,237 ft).

ConocoPhillips has consent to use the jackup Rowan Norway to drill three new production wells on Ekofisk 2/4-B, in the form of side tracks from existing wells. Concurrently, the old wells will be permanently abandoned.

Drilling is expected to continue through mid-2014, with the rig located next to the 2/4 B platform.
