PRODUCTION FROM THE FIELD

Development

Albuskjell is a field in the southern part of the Norwegian sector in the North Sea, 20 kilometres west of the Ekofisk field. The water depth is 70 metres. Albuskjell was discovered in 1972, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 1975. The field was developed with two steel installations for drilling and production. Production started in 1979.

Reservoir

Albuskjell produced gas and condensate from Maastrichtian and lower Paleocene chalk. The deposit is located above a salt dome. The main reservoir is in the Upper Cretaceous Tor Formation, at a depth of 3,200 metres. The overlying Ekofisk Formation has poorer reservoir quality and has hardly been drained. There are significant remaining resources.

Recovery

The field was produced by pressure depletion.

Transport

The well stream was transported via pipeline to the Ekofisk Complex for export.

Status

The field was shut down in 1998 and the platforms were removed in 2011 and 2013. Any redevelopment of the field must be viewed in combination with other decommissioned fields in the area.
