DevelopmentFenris is located in the southern part of the Norwegian sector in the North Sea, 20 kilometres north of the Ekofisk field and 50 kilometres north of the Valhall field. The water depth is 70 metres. Fenris was discovered in 2012, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in June 2023. The development concept includes an unmanned wellhead platform tied-back to the Valhall field.
ReservoirThe reservoir contains gas and condensate in sandstone of Jurassic age in the Ula and Farsund Formations and has high pressure and high temperature (HPHT). It is at a depth of about 5000 metres and has varying quality.
Recovery strategyThe field will be produced by pressure depletion.
TransportThe well stream will be routed by pipeline to the Valhall field centre for processing and further transport.
StatusThe field is under development. The development of Fenris is coordinated with the further development of the Valhall field. The production is planned to start in 2027.
