Consent to use Songa Equinox on the Troll field

The PSA has given Statoil consent to use the Songa Equinox mobile drilling facility for drilling and completion of wells on the Troll field in production licences 054 and 085.

Songa Equinox is a semi-submersible drilling facility and the first of four Cat D rigs that Songa is building for Statoil.

Songa Equinox received an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) from the PSA in November 2015.

The Troll field is located around 65 kilometres west of Kollsnes in Hordaland County and is the largest gas discovery made in the North Sea.

The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway has now granted consent to use Songa Equinox on the Troll field in accordance with Statoil's application.
