Equinor has applied for consent for disposal of the Heidrun loading buoy DSL1 with the associated riser and anchor system, at the Heidrun field.

We have now granted the company this consent.


Heidrun is a field on Haltenbanken in the Norwegian Sea, 30 kilometres northeast of the Åsgard field. The water depth is 350 metres. Heidrun was discovered in 1985, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 1991. The field has been developed with a floating concrete tension-leg platform, installed over a subsea template with 56 well slots. Production started in 1995. The PDO for the Heidrun northern flank was approved in 2000. The northern part of the field is developed with subsea facilities.
