Norway Greenlights Lundin’s Pilot

The Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy has approved Lundin Norway for sample extraction from the Rolvsnes discovery at the Edvard Grieg field in the North Sea.

The Rolvsnes oil discovery is located on the southern side of the Edvard Grieg field and is a fractured and weathered granite basement reservoir.

This reservoir type has not previously been developed in Norway, although it has been developed successfully elsewhere in the world, and an extended well test (EWT) on Rolvsnes is required to better understand the long-term reservoir performance.

The permit is granted for a duration of 12 months. The extraction will take place with the reuse of an appraisal well which was drilled on the field in 2018.

The Rolvsnes EWT will be conducted through a 3km subsea tie-back of the existing Rolvsnes horizontal well to the Edvard Grieg platform, with first oil scheduled in the second quarter 2021. The project will be implemented together with the Solveig project to take advantage of contracting and implementation synergies.
