Statoil is the operator at Njord, an oilfield in the Norwegian Sea, located around 130 km north of Kristiansund.

The Njord field has been developed using a semi-submersible drilling, accommodation and production facility, Njord A, and the Njord B FSU. Water depth at the site is 330 m. Production on the field began in 1997.

The PSA has now granted Statoil consent to use Scarabeo 5 for various well activities associated with production wells on the field.

The activities are scheduled to begin on 10 November 2016.

Scarabeo 5 is a semi-submersible drilling facility of the ME 4500 type, built by Fincantieri in Genoa in 1990. It is registered in the Bahamas and classified by RINA/ABS. Scarabeo 5 was issued with an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) by the PSA in May 2003.
