PSA gives Statoil consent for Gina Krog work

Written by  OE Staff Tuesday, 25 April 2017 10:39

The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) have given Statoil consent to put the Gina Krog facility and associated pipeline system into service. 

In June 2016, Statoil received partial consent from the PSA to put into service the accommodation quarters, cranes, pipelines and other parts of the Gina Krog facility that were necessary for activities in the phase leading up to production start-up.

With consent from the PSA, Statoil can now put into service the facility's production plant and associated pipeline system, which comprises the gas export pipeline between Gina Krog and Sleipner A, the oil export pipeline between the Gina Krog facility and the Gina Krog FSO (floating storage and offloading) storage unit, and the gas import pipeline from Zeepipe IIA to Gina Krog. The consent also includes an installation for the future reception of power from onshore.

An application from Statoil to deploy the Gina Krog FSO facility is currently being processed by the PSA.
