Subsea Facility Development Planned for Rutil

Subsea Facility Development Planned for Rutil

In December, the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) received the Plan for Development and Operation (PDO) for the 34/10-53 S (Rutil) discovery in the Gullfaks Rimfaksdalen area in the North Sea.

Production start-up is scheduled for the first quarter of 2017.

Rutil is a gas discovery. The operator Statoil and licensees are planning for a subsea facility development.

The plan is to tie in the field to existing infrastructure on the Gullfaks A facility, which has available processing capacity.

The Rutil discovery was made in the western part of Gullfaks South. This will contribute to ensuring high and stable gas production from Gullfaks.

Statoil estimates the recoverable reserves at 80 million barrels of oil equivalents, mostly gas. Investments are calculated at 4.6 billion current NOK.

The licensees in Rutil are Statoil (operator, 51 %), Petoro (30 %) and OMV (19 %).
