Consent to use Leiv Eiriksson in the Norwegian Sea

Consent: A/S Norske Shell (Shell) has received consent to use the mobile facility Leiv Eiriksson for production drilling in the Norwegian Sea.


Location of Ormen LangeThe consent applies to drilling/completion of three wells on Ormen Lange.

Ormen Lange (map) is a gas field located in the Møre basin in the southern part of the Norwegian Sea. Due to the substantial water depth (800 – 1100 metres), the development is a demanding one and has led to the development of new technology.

The field is being developed with 24 wells from three subsea templates.

Leiv Eiriksson is owned and operated by Ocean Rig AS. The facility was awarded a new Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) on 11 July 2008.
