PRODUCTION FROM THE FIELD

Reservoir

Byrding produces oil and gas from turbiditic sandstone of Late Jurassic age in the Heather Formation. The reservoir lies at a depth of 3,050 metres. It is structurally complex and has good reservoir quality.

Recovery strategy

The field is produced by pressure depletion.

Transport

The well stream is routed through Fram Vest to Troll C for processing. The oil is transported further in the Troll Oil Pipeline II to the Mongstad terminal and the gas is exported via Troll A to the Kollsnes terminal.

Status

The field is producing with a higher gas/oil ratio (GOR) than expected.

Development

Byrding is a field in the northern part of the North Sea, four kilometres north of the Fram H-Nord field and 30 kilometres north of the Troll C facility. The water depth is 360 metres. Byrding was discovered in 2005, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 2017. The development concept is a two-branch multilateral (MLT) well, which was drilled from the Fram H-Nord template. Production started in 2017.
