Consent for use of Maersk Gallant at Eldfisk

The PSA has granted ConocoPhillips consent to use the Maersk Gallant mobile drilling facility for plugging and abandoning a production well at Eldfisk 2/7 A.


Eldfisk is an oil field lying due south of Ekofisk in 70-75 metres of water in the southern North Sea. Production began in 1979.

Mærsk Gallant is a jack-up drilling facility, built at Far East Levingston Shipbuilding (FELS) in Singapore in 1993. The facility is operated by Maersk Contractors Norge A/S. It received Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) in August 2002.

The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway has now granted consent to use Maersk Gallant at Eldfisk in accordance with ConocoPhillips's application.
