Consent on Sleipner

The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) has granted Statoil ASA its consent to use Sleipner Vest precompression and the Alfa Nord facilities on Sleipner T / Sleipner A.


Sleipner Vest is developed with two installations; the wellhead platform Sleipner B and the gas treatment platform Sleipner T, which is geographically situated on Sleipner Øst with a gangway connection to Sleipner A (photo).

Sleipner Øst (photo) consists of the installations Sleipner A (integrated drilling, production and living quarters platform), a riser platform and a flare stack.

The Alfa Nord development (Sleipner Vest) consists of a subsea template with four wells, a trenched and isolated 16" pipeline and modifications on Sleipner T to enable it to receive the Alfa Nord wellstream.

Alfa Nord is controlled from Sleipner A via a trenched umbilical between Sleipner A and the Alfa Nord template.

A new precompressor will replace one of the export compressors on Sleipner T and the existing export cooler will be replaced by two compact precompression aftercoolers.

The consent was granted on 22 July 2004.
