Statoil has allocated 215 days for the activity, which will start in the second quarter of 2016. Water depth at the site is 125 metres.
The PSA has now granted Statoil consent to use the West Epsilon mobile drilling facility for these activities. West Epsilon is operated by North Atlantic Drilling, formerly known as Seadrill Offshore AS.
The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway issued an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) for West Epsilon on 14 February 2003.
