Statoil secures consent for use of Gina Krog FSO

Published 08 September 2017

Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) has given Statoil consent to use the Gina Krog FSO on the Gina Krog field.

The Gina Krog FSO is a converted shuttle tanker destined for use as a storage vessel on the Gina Krog field.

Gina Krog is an oil and gas field located 250 kilometres west of Stavanger and 30 kilometres north-west of the Sleipner A facility in the North Sea. The field has been developed using a fixed steel platform and a storage vessel (FSO) for oil, and started production in June 2017. Statoil is the field's operator.

We have granted consent for the use of the Gina Krog FSO in accordance with Statoil's application.

Teekay owns and operates the FSO. No Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) will be issued, since this is a facility that shall only be used for storage, with reference to the guidelines regarding the Management Regulations Section 25.
