PRODUCTION FROM THE FIELD

Development

Ivar Aasen is an oil field in the northern part of the North Sea, about 30 kilometres south of the Grane and Balder fields. The field consists of the discoveries 16/1-9 Ivar Aasen and 16/1-7 (West Cable). The field. The water depth is about 110 metres. The development comprises a production, drilling and quarters (PDQ) platform with a steel jacket and a separate jack-up rig for drilling and completion. The platform has spare slots for possible additional wells. The platform is equipped for tie-in of a subsea template planned for the development of the Hanz field, and for possible development of other nearby discoveries. First stage processing is carried out on the Ivar Aasen field, and the partly processed fluids are transported to the Edvard Grieg field for final processing and export.

Reservoir

The 16/1-9 Ivar Aasen reservoir consists of fluvial sandstone in the Skagerrak and Sleipner Formations and shallow marine sandstone in the Hugin Formation, and is of Late Triassic to Middle Jurassic age. The reservoir contains oil at a depth of about 2,400 metres. Parts of the reservoir have an overlying gas cap. The reservoir in 16/1-7 (West Cable) is in fluvial sandstone in the Middle Jurassic Sleipner Formation. It contains oil at a depth of about 2,950 metres.

Recovery

16/1-9 Ivar Aasen is produced by pressure support from water injection. 16/1-7 (West Cable) is produced by pressure support from an aquifer.

Transport

Oil and gas is transported to the Edvard Grieg platform for final processing.

Status

Production started in December 2016 as planned.
