The consent has been granted for the period 20 February - 15 September 2005.
The MSV Regalia (photo) will be dynamically positioned with a bridge connection to the Visund facility.
The plan is to expand the gas unit on Visund in order to increase gas injection capacity and facilitate gas transport to Kvitebjørn by 1 October 2005. This will take place while drilling activity is also maintained.
In this context, a flotel is needed in order to accommodate the necessary personnel.
The MSV Regalia is a semi-submersible facility of the "GVA 3000" type. It has 193 cabins and is operated by Prosafe Offshore Ltd.
The facility was most recently used as a flotel for Statoil at Troll A.
