The Norwegian Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) said it has given Equinor a green light to conduct exploration drilling at block 34/4 of the Snorre oil field in the North Sea.

Equinor drills 34 / 4-17S on the Statfjord Kile using Odfjell Drilling’s Deepsea Stavanger, a semi-submersible 6th generation GVA7500 design. The water depth on the premises is 360 meters.

Equinor is an operator and owns 31% of production license 057. Its partners are Petoro (30%), Wintershal Dea (24.5%), Idemitsu Petroleum (9.6%) and Vår Energi (4.9).

The Snorre oil field, which straddles blocks 34/4 and 34/7 in the Tampen region of the North Sea of ​​Norway, has been producing oil and gas since 1992. The field consists of Snorre A and Snorre B platforms and an extensive underwater production system.
