Consent to use Oseberg H

We have given Statoil consent to put the Oseberg H facility on the Oseberg field into commission.


We have given Statoil consent to put into commission the Oseberg H facility, which is part of the Oseberg Vestflanken 2 development on the Oseberg field.

We have previously given Statoil consent to use the Askepott jack-up facility for drilling production wells at Vestflanken 2.

The consent to use Oseberg H is limited to the period in which Askepott is tied to the facility.

Oseberg H and Vestflanken 2
Statoil is the operator of the Oseberg field, which is in the northern sector of the North Sea. The field has been developed in several stages and production began in 1988.

In 2016 Statoil's plan for development and operation (PDO) of Vestflanken 2 was approved. This development will help extend the operating life of Oseberg.

Oseberg Vestflanken 2 has been developed using a fixed wellhead facility: Oseberg H. This is a simple facility without processing equipment, living quarters, drilling plant or helideck.

Oseberg H will be remotely operated and monitored from the control room at Oseberg field centre.
