Development

Bauge is a field on the Halten bank in the southern Norwegian Sea, 15 kilometres east of the Njord field. The water depth is 280 metres. Bauge was discovered in 2013, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 2017. The field is developed with two production wells tied-back to the Njord A facility and a water injection well drilled from the subsea template on the Hyme field.

Reservoir

The main reservoirs contain oil in Lower and Middle Jurassic sandstone in the Tilje and Ile Formations, at a depth of 2,700 metres. The reservoirs are segmented and have moderate quality.

Recovery strategy

The field is produced by pressure depletion. Pressure maintenance with water injection is planned to start few years after production start-up.

Transport

The well stream is transported to the Njord A platform for processing. Produced oil is transported by pipeline to the storage vessel Njord B, and further by tankers to the market. Gas from the field is exported by pipeline via the Åsgard Transport System (ÅTS) and further to the Kårstø terminal.

Status

The field started production in April 2023.
