West Elara is a jack-up drilling facility delivered from the Jurong Shipyard Pte Ltd in Singapore in 2011.

West Elara can accommodate 120 people. It is registered in Norway and Det Norske Veritas is the classification society.


It is the assessment of the PSA that petroleum activity can be conducted using the West Elara facility within the framework of the regulations.

The decision is based on the information provided in the AoC application regarding the facility’s technical condition and the applicant’s organisation and management system, as well as the authorities’ verifications and other case processing.

The validity of this AoC is contingent upon North Atlantic Norway Limited ensuring that the facility and relevant aspects of the company’s organisation and management system are maintained, so terms and preconditions in the PSA’s decision are safeguarded.
