Production on Snorre started in 1992. Statoil has identified a need for modification, upgrade and replacement of drilling modules on the Snorre A facility, with the aim of extending the technical lifetime of the drilling facilities until 2040, as well as to improve the working environment, safety and regularity on the facility. The modification will also help reduce the risk of discharges to sea.

The work on board the facility is scheduled to start in October 2013 and will be completed in 2015, and Statoil has now received the PSA’s consent to start the modification.
