The Volve oil field was developed using a jack-up process and drilling facility – Mærsk Inspirer – and a ship – Navion Saga – for storage of stabilised oil. The oil is exported from Volve by tankers.
From August until the end of October, Navion Saga will be taken out of service for classing/yard stay.
The PSA has granted Statoil consent to use Navion Europa as a temporary replacement for Navion Saga.
Navion Europa has also been used as a replacement on Volve on two previous occasions.
