Det norske has received consent from the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) to use the Maersk Interceptor jackup to drill production wells at Ivar Aasen.

Ivar Aasen is an oil and gas field in the North Sea, around 175km west-southwest of Karmøy in Rogaland county. Water depth in the area is approximately 110m. The field has been developed using a Production/Drilling/Quarters (PDQ) facility with a steel jacket.  Det norske is the field's operator.

Maersk Interceptor will drill a further three wells for the Ivar Aasen PDQ. Drilling is scheduled to start in late November and estimated to last until 1 July 2017.

Maersk Interceptor was delivered by the Keppel Shipyard of Singapore in 2014. The facility is owned by Maersk and operated by Maersk Drilling Norge. Maersk Interceptor was issued with an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) by the PSA in December 2014.
