DevelopmentFenja is a field in the Norwegian Sea, 35 kilometres southwest of the Njord field. The water depth is 325 metres. The field also includes the discovery 6406/12-3 A (Bue). Fenja was discovered in 2014, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 2018. The planned development consists of two subsea templates with a total of six wells tied-back to the Njord A facility.
ReservoirThe reservoirs contain oil and gas in sandstone of Late Jurassic age in the Melke Formation, and oil in Upper Jurassic sandstone in the Rogn Formation. The reservoirs are in a fan system at a depth of 3,200-3,500 metres, and they have variable properties.
Recovery strategyThe field will be produced by pressure support from water and gas injection. Produced gas will be reinjected into the reservoir.
TransportThe well stream will be routed by pipeline to the Njord A facility for processing. The oil will be stored at the Njord B facility and transferred to shuttle tankers. The reinjected gas will be produced at the end of the oil production period. The gas will be exported via Åsgard Transport System (ÅTS).
StatusProduction is planned to start in 2021. The Bue discovery is included in the development as a potential upside. The injection and production wells will be drilled in 2020. An appraisal well is planned to be drilled on Bue.
