Consent to use wells on Oseberg Delta

StatoilHydro ASA (StatoilHydro) has received consent to use Oseberg D wells, subsea template and manifold, with associated pipelines between the template and the Oseberg Field Centre, as well as newly-installed equipment on the facility.

The Oseberg Delta gas and condensate field is located about 150 km west of Bergen and 8.5 km southwest of the Oseberg Field Centre.  Water depth at the site is 102 m.

Oseberg Delta is developed with a subsea installation with four well slots which will be tied to the Oseberg D facility at the Oseberg Field Centre by means of two pipelines.

The Plan for Development and Operation (PDO) for Oseberg Delta was approved by the King in Council on 23 September 2005, with subsequent approval in the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy on 27 February 2006.

According to StatoilHydro, expected start-up of oil production from Oseberg Delta will be on 1 March 2008, depending on progress made in drilling, commissioning and testing.
