Statoil has received consent to use West Epsilon for permanent plugging of wells at Huldra 30/2-A, in production licence 051.


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.
