PSA Carries Out Audit of Marathon Oil’s Bøyla Project

PSA Carries Out Audit of Marathon Oil's Bøyla Project

On 13 February 2014, the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) carried out an audit of the Bøyla project. The activity was focused on the project management of seabed facilities and pipeline systems.

The objective of the audit is to monitor that the project has been planned and carried out in compliance with applicable regulations and recognised norms, and that requirements in the HSE regulations are provided for.

No non-conformities or improvement points were identified.

The Bøyla field is located in block 24/9 in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea approximately 28 kilometres south of the Alvheim Field.

The PL 340 license was awarded in 2004 and the initial discovery was made in 2009.

Subsurface evaluation and mapping conducted post exploration and appraisal drilling has resulted in a gross mean commercial volume estimate of 23 million barrels of oil equivalents.
