§ 47 Placement of facilities, choice of routes

Facilities, including wells, shall be placed at a safe distance from other facilities and objects such as lighthouses, beacons, cables, pipelines and particularly vulnerable environmental values and the like, so that they will not constitute an unacceptable risk to other facilities, other activities or the external environment.
When crossing other pipelines, cables or lines of all kinds, the procedure shall be agreed with the owners in each individual case.
Section last changed: 17 June 2016

The first subsection entails that the planned well position and wellbore shall not be closer to the delimitation line towards neighbouring blocks or foreign state's sectors of the continental shelf than the uncertainty inherent in the chosen coordinate system. Statements from the owners of facilities in the area shall be emphasised when the facility's or the well's position is to be determined.
