Talisman Energy AS (TENAS) has received consent to use Mærsk Giant for well plugging on the Varg field.


TENAS has received consent to use Mærsk Giant for plugging wells 15/12-A-2, A-4, A-9, A-11, A-12, A-13, A-15 and A-16 on the Varg field.

Varg is an oil field located south of Sleipner East in the central sector of the North Sea. The field will be produced using the Petrojarl Varg production vessel, which has integrated oil storage and is tied to the Varg A well-head facility.

The wells will be drilled by Mærsk Giant which is a jack-up mobile drilling facility. It is owned and operated by the A.P. Møller-Mærsk Group. It was built in Japan by Hitachi and completed in 1986.
