The Norwegian offshore safety authority has given Statoil permission to use its subsea system at the Sygin field.
Sigyn has been developed using a subsea template, with the well stream transported to the Sleipner A facility 12 kilometres north-west of the well template.
The field is 222 kilometres west of Stavanger, in an area with a water depth of 70 metres.
Production on the field began in 2002.
