Shell receives consent to use Transocean Barents

Shell has received consent to use Transocean Barents for well plugging at Draugen.

Draugen is an oil field in the Norwgeian Sea in 250 metres of water. A/S Norske Shell (Shell) is the field's operator. Production on the field began in October 1993. The field has been developed using a fixed concrete facility with an integrated deck. Reserves in the vicinity are produced by subsea wells tied back to this facility.

Shall has now received consent to use the Transocean Barents mobile drilling facility to plug subsea well 6407/9-3-A-53 permanently. The work is expected to last for 71 days.

Transocean Barents is a semi-submersible mobile drilling facility of the Aker H-6e type. It was built at Aker Kværner Stord in 2009 and is owned and operated by Transocean. The facility is registered in the Marshall Islands and classified by DNV GL.
