Development

Bauge is a field on Haltenbanken 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 June 2017. The field will be developed with two production wells tied-back to the Njord A facility. A water injection well will be drilled from the existing 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 will be produced by partial pressure maintenance from phased water injection, which will start a few years after production start-up.

Transport

The well stream will be transported to the Njord A platform for processing. Produced oil will be transported by pipeline to the storage vessel Njord B, and further by tankers to the market. Gas from the field is exported through a 40-kilometre pipeline connected to the Åsgard Transport System (ÅTS) and further to the Kårstø terminal.

Status

The field is under development, and production is scheduled to start in late 2020.
