The consent covers drilling and completion of two production wells and one water injection well on the Bøyla field in the North Sea using the Transocean Winner mobile drilling facility.
Water depth at the site is around 120 metres.
The Bøyla oil field belongs to production licence 340, for which Marathon Oil Norge AS is the operator. The other licensees are Core Energy and Lundin Norway.
Bøyla is located about 28 kilometres south of the Alvheim field in the North Sea. The field has been developed using a subsea installation tied to the Alvheim FPSO. The planned start-up is in 2014.
