Friday, Jan 11, 2013
ConocoPhillips has received consent to use the Rowan Norway mobile drilling facility to drill three new production wells on Ekofisk 2/4-B
ConocoPhillips will drill new production wells on Ekofisk 2/4-B in the form of sidetracks from existing wells. At the same time, the old wells will be permanently abandoned.
The plan is to start the drilling programme at the end of December 2012, which will last until mid-2014.
The drilling will be carried out with the Rowan Norway mobile drilling facility, which will be located next to the 2/4 B facility while the work is ongoing.

The facility received an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) from the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) on 21 December 2012.
The PSA has now granted ConocoPhillips consent in accordance with the application.
