Statoil to remove emergency response vessel from Snorre A

Statoil news

The Norwegian offshore safety authority has given Statoil permission to remove the emergency response vessel at its Snorre A field.

Until now the field has had its own emergency response vessel for fire fighting, which has also contributed to man over board response.

The Norwegian oil firm applied for consent to remove the emergency response vessel, having established a wider area emergency response scheme in the Tampen area, which includes the Snorre field.

The scheme is made up of a search and rescue helicopter and an area response vessel.

Snorre A is a floating tension leg platform (TLP) for accommodation, drilling and processing.

The facility began producing in 1992.
