Statoil has received consent to use Songa Enabler for drilling a production well at Snohvit. Snohvit is a gas field in the Barents Sea north-west of Hammerfest. Statoil is the field's operator. Sn?hvit has been developed using a subsea production facility. The gas is transported onshore through a 143-kilometre-long pipeline to Melkoya, off Hammerfest. Production at Snohvit began in 2007.

On 15 July 2016, Statoil received consent to use the Songa Enabler mobile drilling facility to drill three wells on the field.

We have now given Statoil consent to drill a fourth well using the same facility. The well is to be drilled in the same well template as two of the first wells, at these geographical coordinates:

- 71o 36' 39.23" N
- 21o 03' 24.46" E

The well template is in 318 metres of water. Drilling is scheduled to begin in mid-march 2017 and will last 65 days.

Songa Enabler is a semi-submersible drilling facility of the CAT D type. It was delivered by the Daewoo yard in South Korea in 2016, is registered in Norway and classified by DNV-GL. Songa Enabler was issued with an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) by the PSA in July 2016.
