Nansen SPAR

The Nansen and Boomvang fields lie in the East Breaks area of the Gulf of Mexico, approx. 150 miles south of Houston. Nansen lies in East Breaks block 602 and Boomvang lies in blocks 642, 643 and 683. Nansen lies in 3,678ft of water, while Boomvang lies in 3,453ft.
Nansen was discovered in October 1999, in 3,680ft of water, approx. eight miles east of the previously announced North Boomvang discovery. Successful drilling of Nansen No 8 well, on East Breaks 602, extended the field to the south. At Boomvang, a second rig was secured to concurrently drill a total of up to seven wells at North and East Boomvang.
