The Petroleum Safety Authority gives the green light for Eirik Raude

The Petroleum Safety Authority (Norway) considers Ocean Rig and Norsk Hydro to have complied with the order that was issued.


On Thursday 17 February, Ocean Rig was ordered to review the quality of all necessary barriers before operations could resume, while Norsk Hydro was ordered to ensure that this review was carried out in a proper manner.

Based on meetings and documentation we have received from Ocean Rig and Norsk Hydro, the PSA has arrived at the conclusion that the order has been fulfilled, and that exploration drilling can resume.
