Shell has received consent to use two subsea wells on the Draugen field in the Norwegian Sea.
Norway’s Petroleum Safety Authority has given Shell consent to commission the last two wells, designated G2 and G3 after the company began its programme to drill four subsea wells on the field in 2013. The first two came on stream in 2014.
The PSA consent also covers underwater equipment, subsea pumps and equipment on board the Draugen facility linked to these wells.
Shell is the operator at Draugen, an oil field at Haltenbanken, around 150 kilometres north of Kristiansund. Production from the field began in 1993.
