Consent to use subsea wells at Draugen

Shell has received consent to use two subsea wells on the Draugen field.


A/S Norske Shell (Shell) is the operator at Draugen, which is an oil field at Haltenbanken in the Norwegian Sea, around 150 kilometres north of Kristiansund. Production from the field began in 1993.

In 2013, Shell initiated a programme to drill four subsea wells on the field. Two of these came on stream in 2014.

The PSA has given Shell consent to commission the last two wells, designated G2 and G3. The consent also covers underwater equipment, subsea pumps and equipment on board the Draugen facility linked to these wells.
