Statoil installs Gudrun jacket in North Sea

By OGJ editors

Statoil has installed the 7,400 tonne, 16 well-slot steel jacket for the Gudrun development in the Norwegian North Sea.

Gudrun field, discovered with a well (15/3-1 S) drilled in 1974-75 lies in 110 m of water about 55 km north of Sleipner (OGJ Online, June 23, 2011).

Jacket installation began on July 24 and was competed on Aug. 2. The Saipem 7000 crane ship lifted the jacket into place.

Drilling is scheduled to start in the fourth quarter, and Gudrun is expected to come on stream in 2014, Statoil said.

Operator Statoil holds 75% interest in the field with GDF Suez E&P Norge AS holding 25%.
