Shell new operator at Ormen Lange

StatoilHydro announced Nov. 28 that Shell will be the operator of the Ormen Lange gas field offshore the west coast of Norway starting Dec. 1.

The Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy had designated StatoilHydro as operator for the development of the field. But now that the field is in operation, Shell is becoming operator, StatoilHydro said. Norwegian gas pipeline company Gassco operates the gas export line that connects the onshore Ormen Lange production facility to the UK gas grid at Easington on the English east coast.

StatoilHydro owns a 28.91 percent interest in the Ormen Lange field. Shell has a 17.04 percent interest; Petoro has a 36.48 percent interest; Dong E & P has a 10.34 percent interest; and ExxonMobil has a 7.23 percent interest.
