Consent to use Scarabeo 5 at Njord

Statoil has received consent to use Scarabeo 5 for well activities on the Njord field.


Statoil is the operator at Njord, an oil field in the Norwegian Sea, located around 130 kilometres north of Kristiansund.

The Njord field has been developed using a semi-submersible drilling, accommodation and production facility, Njord A, and the Njord B FSU. Water depth at the site is 330 metres. Production on the field began in 1997.

The PSA has now granted Statoil consent to use Scarabeo 5 for various well activities associated with production wells on the field.

The activities are scheduled to begin on 10 November 2016. 

Scarabeo 5 is a semi-submersible drilling facility of the ME 4500 type, built by Fincantieri in Genoa in 1990. It is registered in the Bahamas and classified by RINA/ABS. Scarabeo 5 was issued with an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) by the PSA in May 2003.
