Statoil Petroleum AS has received consent to remove a loading buoy from the Heidrun oil export solution.
Heidrun is located at Haltenbanken in the Norwegian Sea. The water depth at the site is around 350 metres. The field has been developed using a concrete floating tension leg platform over a subsea facility with 56 well slots.
The activity is scheduled to start during June 2014.
This field in the Norwegian Sea has been producing oil and gas since October 1995 from a floating tension leg platform with a concrete hull.
Heidrun was discovered in 1985 by Conoco, which served as operator for the exploration and development phase.
