Transocean Barents to Spud Ormen Lange Well

A/S Norske Shell has received consent from the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) to use Transocean Barents to drill appraisal well 6305/8-2 at Ormen Lange.

Ormen Lange is a gas field located in the Møre Basin in the southern section of the Norwegian Sea. The sea here varies from 800 metres to more than 1100 metres deep. This great water depth and the seabed conditions have made this a highly challenging development, requiring technological innovation.

Drilling is scheduled to start in August 2014.

Transocean Barents (formerly Aker Barents) is a 6th-generation semi-submersible drilling facility of the H-6e type. The facility was built at the Aker Stord yard in Norway and was completed in 2009.

Transocean Barents is owned and operated by Transocean Norway, from head offices in Stavanger.
