28-Jul-2015 Statoil Snorre & Grane PRM Spring Survey Completion
Spring 2015 Permanent Reservoir Monitoring (“PRM”) operations over the Statoil operated Snorre and Grane fields have now been completed ahead of schedule thanks to a combination of excellent operational performance, minimum downtime and favourable weather conditions.
A total of over 6,000 km of data has been shot over the two fields, now in the second full year of operation. Source operations started over the Grane field after mobilisation in Stavanger on the 3 May with completion on Snorre on the 13 July. The D-PMSSTM has now been demobilised from the platform supply vessel ‘Siddis Sailor’, operated by OH Meling, and will be re-mobilised again later this Summer for the Autumn survey period.
Marcus Smith, Operations Director commented: “We have had two excellent surveys this season with the best recorded production figures and lowest downtime hours seen since we started the PRM survey for Statoil. Records have been broken and all with zero HSE incidents during this time. The working relationship between the WGP and OH Meling crew onboard the ‘Siddis Sailor’ has gone from strength to strength and this cooperation has helped us achieve this outstanding performance. We look forward to returning in the Autumn and acquiring yet more data to assist Statoil in increasing their PRM data library”.
