Equinor (Statoil) is the operator of Oseberg Øst, an oil field in block 30/6 in the eastern sector of the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
The field was discovered in 1981 and production began in 1999.
Equinor has applied for consent to extend the operating life to 2031.
The consent for extended operating life is contingent on the operator having ascertained that the facilities, pipelines and equipment are in a state that permits them to always be operated safely and in compliance with regulatory requirements.
We find that Equinor has made the requisite assessments and investigations to ascertain this.
We have now given Equinor the consent it applied for.
