Consent to use subsea template 34/7-G on Vigdis

StatoilHydro has received consent to use the subsea production and injection template 34/7-G for Vigdis Extension 2.

34/7-G is a four-slot template* installed approx. 100 meters southeast of satellite well C-5H. The template is tied to this well with a flexible pipeline for transfer of the wellstream to Snorre A through the existing infrastructure on the field.

A well template is a load-bearing steel structure placed on the seabed. It is used as a foundation for casing, wellhead, xmas tree, manifold, choke, etc. for subsea wells.

Injection water will be pumped from Snorre A to the new template. Among other things, an umbilical has been installed to ensure control over the wells from Snorre A.
