AKER BP TO USE MAERSK INVINCIBLE AT VALHALL

May 17, 2017

Aker BP has received from the Norwegian Petroleum Safety Authority consent to use Maersk Invincible for plugging wells at Valhall. Production from Valhall DP is scheduled to end in the next few years. Three of the wells are still in production, while 18 have been shut down. Of these, 13 have been permanently plugged and abandoned, and Maersk Invincible will be used for plugging the other five. Maersk Invincible is a jack-up drilling facility owned by Maersk Drilling, Denmark. It was delivered by the Daewoo yard in South Korea in 2016, is classified by DNV GL and registered in Singapore. Valhall is a giant oilfield in the southern Norwegian North Sea. Production started in 1982 and following commissioning of the new PH platform in 2013 the field now has the potential to continue producing for several decades. (Source: PSA)
