Statoil: Oseberg Delta 2 On Stream

Statoil Oseberg Delta 2 On Stream

Statoil and its partners started up production from Oseberg Delta 2 in the North Sea, on 21 February. The field’s recoverable reserves are estimated at 77 million barrels oil equivalent.

The field, which is tied back to the Oseberg Field Centre, has been developed using two subsea templates with capacity for a total of eight wells.

The initial phase of the plan initially involves three oil producers and two gas injectors.

“Delta 2 is an important element in extending the lifetime of Oseberg. It pr​ovides a good example of how we can make lesser discoveries profitable by using existing infrastructure while it is still available,” says Arild Dybvig, vice president for fast-track development projects in Development & Production Norway.

The start-up of the first well is in line with the development plan and takes place 38 months after the discovery became part of the fast-track portfolio.

The total investment is slightly less than NOK 7 billion, well below the estimated investment cost when the project was sanctioned.

We’ve delivered yet another high quality, fast-track development according to plan and well within budget,” says Torger Rød, senior vice president for subsea projects in Technology, Projects & Drilling.

Oseberg Delta 2 marks a further development on the Delta terrace where oil from two wells on an existing template has been produced since 2008.

“The new development includes gas injection that will give us a substantially greater recovery rate.”

“There are also some good opportunities for the further development of the area and an exploration well has already been planned in the southern part of the Delta terrace,” says Terje Gunnar Hauge, vice president for operations on Oseberg East.

The plan for development and operation was submitted to the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy on 30 May 2013.​​​​​​​​

2nd Annual Offshore Power Cable Engineering and Reliability Forum

This exclusive BIS forum will showcase an analytical insights into how industry leaders are reducing risk and improving efficiency during offshore power cable installation. Participants will learn how to increase cable integrity and manage cost during offshore projects. This interactive forum will explore effective and safe maintenance of offshore cables in deeper, harsher environments. With a two day intimate forum followed by half a day workshop, joining together key industry professionals to discuss, brainstorm, share experience and partake in exclusive networking sessions in a flexible and dynamic platform – together shaping the future of the market.

As Europe strives to meet its 2020 renewable targets the need for infrastructure increases and the integration of renewable energy into the European grid along with the necessity for trade is of huge importance. HVDC offshore cables are a vital investment; both of time and money, and any challenges arising could result in operational and financial losses. An insight on how to efficiently cope with the changes and keeping up with market trends is needed.

This BIS GROUP Forum will allow leading electricity cable and interconnection players to exchange and discuss experience on reliable offshore power cable monitoring, protection strategies, repair and installation technologies that are vital for operating in cost-efficient manner. The forum will also provide solutions and strategies on how to overcome the challenges of laying and installing of offshore power cables in deep water / far offshore.

KEY TOPICS INCLUDE:

  • Deepen your insight into the latest cable design advancements
  • Identify the latest technological innovations in cable laying & installation projects
  • Explore the possibilities of dynamic cables and deep water installation
  • Discover new generation of cost effective burial and trenching methods
  • Ease your cable protection strategy and save your resources
  • Explore how to use the latest monitoring and testing techniques to enhance cable repair
  • Gain invaluable insight into the latest maintenance methodologies to achieve cable integrity and reduce cost
  • Benefit from expert opinion on predictive and preventative maintenance strategy
