The Petroleum Safety Authority of Norway has given Statoil Petroleum AS consent to use the Bideford Dolphin drilling facility for drilling and completing well 34/7-A-10 on the Snorre field.

Drilling is scheduled to begin on 7 July 2017 and to last 110 days.

Bideford Dolphin is operated by Dolphin Drilling AS. Bideford Dolphin is a mobile drilling facility of the Aker H-3 type, built at Aker Verdal in 1975 and modified in 1998. The facility is classified by DNV GL and registered in Singapore.

Bideford Dolphin was issued with an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) by the PSA in September 2004.

Snorre is an oil field in the Tampen area of the North Sea, around 150 kilometres west of Florø. The field has been developed using two floating integrated production facilities, Snorre A and B, and one subsea template tied back to Snorre A. Production at Snorre began in 1992.
