Gina Krog is an oil and gas discovery situated around 250 kilometres west of Stavanger and 30 kilometres north-west of the Sleipner A facility. Water depth at the site is approx. 110 metres. The development concept is a new steel platform and an oil storage vessel with a capacity of 850,000 barrels.
The field was proven in 1974. The reservoir contains oil and gas in Middle Jurassic sandstone in the Hugin formation.
Statoil has now received consent from the PSA to use Maersk Integrator to drill and complete new production wells on the field.
Maersk Integrator is a jack-up drilling facility, delivered by the Keppel Shipyard in Singapore in 2014. The facility will be operated by Maersk Drilling Norge AS.
Maersk Integrator was issued with an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AOC) by the PSA in June 2015.
