DevelopmentBreidablikk is a field in the central part of the North Sea, ten kilometres northeast of the Grane field. The water depth is 130 metres. Breidablikk includes two discoveries, 25/8-4 (D-structure) and 25/11-27 (F-structure), discovered in 1992 and 2013, respectively. The plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in June 2021. The field is being developed with four subsea templates tied-back to the Grane platform.
ReservoirThe main reservoirs contain oil in Paleocene sandstone in the Heimdal Formation, at a depth of 1700 metres. The reservoirs have good quality, with little variation in reservoir properties. Above the Heimdal Formation, oil is present in a sand injectite complex in shales of Paleocene and Eocene age in the Lista, Sele and Balder Formations.
Recovery strategyThe field will be produced by pressure depletion, assisted by gas lift in the production wells which will be placed close to the top of the structures.
TransportThe oil will be transported from Grane to the onshore terminal at Sture for storage and export.
StatusThe field is under development.
