        挪威石油和天然气公司Aker BP已获挪威海上安全监管机构的同意,将马士基钻探(Maersk Drilling)公司的钻井平台用于挪威附近的北海油田的油井作业与住舱规划。
 
        石油安全局(The Petroleum Safety Authority,简称PSA)于本周初表示,其已经同意Aker BP公司使用马士基“Integrator”钻井平台在“Valhall Flanke Nord”油田进行油井作业和住舱规划工作。
 
        马士基“Integrator”是一座自升式钻井平台,由新加坡Keppel船厂于2014年交付。该钻井平台于2015年6月收到PSA的合规确认书(Acknowledgement of Compliance,简称AoC),即MSC CJ70-X150-MD。基于马士基“Innovator”和马士基“Inspirer”两种钻井平台的设计,这座钻井平台设计用于北海油田的全年作业。
 
        早在2021年12月,马士基钻探公司和Aker BP公司达成一项价值约为10亿美元的协议,以更新并延长其框架协议,将马士基钻探公司视为Aker BP公司进行自升式钻井作业的合作伙伴。
 
        数月后,马士基钻探公司和Aker BP公司同意进行钻井平台互换,即在2022年2月底或3月初,使用低排放的自升式马士基“Integrator”钻井平台代替挪威海上的马士基“Reacher”钻井平台。根据这项交易,马士基“Integrator”钻井平台将使用至到2023年1月,在Aker BP的“Valhall”和“Hod”两块油田进行油井作业。
 
        位于挪威北海南部的“Valhall”油田于1982年开始生产,该区由一个油田中心和五个由桥梁连接的平台以及四个由油田中心操控的井口平台组成,并且该油田主要由海岸供电。
 
        此外,“Valhall Flank”开采项目由两个相同的无人井口平台组成,每个平台都配备了16个钻井槽,距离现有的处理井流的“Valhall”设施6公里。“South Flank”项目于2003年开始生产,而“North Flank”于2004年投入使用。
 
        关于Aker BP公司的最新发展,其中值得注意的是这家挪威公司在6月底完成了与Lundin Energy’s E&P公司勘探与开采业务的合并工作。 
 
        Aker BP公司声明,这次合并促使了专用于挪威大陆架(Norwegian Continental Shelf,简称NCS)地区最大勘探开采上市公司的成立,这也是其在NCS地区运营的第二大公司。

Aker BP all set to deploy Maersk rig on North Sea field
 
Norwegian oil and gas company Aker BP has received consent from Norway’s offshore safety regulator to use one of Maersk Drilling-owned rigs for well intervention and living quarters on a field located in the North Sea off Norway.
 
The Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) said earlier this week that it has given Aker BP consent to use Maersk Integrator rig for well intervention and living quarters on the Valhall Flanke Nord field.
 
Maersk Integrator is a jack-up drilling rig, which was delivered by the Keppel Shipyard in Singapore in 2014. This rig, which received an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) from the PSA in June 2015,  is an MSC CJ70-X150-MD, designed for year-round operation in the North Sea, based on the design of the Mærsk Innovator and the Mærsk Inspirer rigs.
 
Back in December 2021, Maersk Drilling and Aker BP entered into a Heads of Agreement – estimated at around $1 billion – to renew and extend the frame agreement that establishes Maersk Drilling as the firm’s jack-up rig drilling partner.
 
A few months later, Maersk Drilling and Aker BP agreed to a rig swap, whereby the jack-up rig Maersk Reacher was to be replaced by the low-emission jack-up rig Maersk Integrator offshore Norway in end-February/early March 2022. Based on this deal, Maersk Integrator will be busy until January 2023 with well intervention and stimulation activities at Aker BP’s Valhall and Hod fields.
 
When it comes to the Valhall field, which is located in the southern Norwegian North Sea, the production started in 1982 and the Valhall area consists of a field centre with five platforms connected by bridges, and four wellhead platforms that are remotely controlled from the field centre. The field is powered with electricity from shore.
 
Moreover, the Valhall Flank developments are two identical unmanned wellhead platforms each equipped with 16 drilling slots and located about six kilometres from the existing Valhall facilities where the well streams are processed. The South Flank started production in 2003, and the North Flank came on stream in 2004.
 
Regarding Aker BP’s latest developments, it is worth noting that the Norwegian player completed the merger with Lundin Energy’s E&P business at the end of June. 
 
This merger resulted in the creation of the largest listed E&P company focused exclusively on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS) and the second-largest one operating on the NCS, based on Aker BP’s statement.
