Oil major Shell has been given consent to use the Island Constructor mobile drilling facility for start-up and repair of wells on the Draugen field.
The approval was given by the Norwegian Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) to be used for start-up and repair of wells on the Draugen field.
The Draugen oil field is in the Norwegian Sea in 250 metres of water.
The field has been developed using a fixed concrete facility with an integrated deck.
Earlier this week Shell said it would be reducing its workforce by an additional 2,200 people including 475 positions from its North Sea operations.
