On 28 March 2003, the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate received Statoil's application for permission to remove one of the standby vessels on the Statfjord field.
After a review of the documentation, the application was rejected in a letter dated 20 November 2003.
In a subsequent meeting with Statoil, new information emerged which led to a new evaluation of the application.
The consent was granted on 19 February 2004.
