PRODUCTION FROM THE FIELD

Development

Gimle is a filed in th northern part of the North Sea, just northeast of the Gullfaks field. The water depth in the area is about 220 metres. Gimle was discovered in 2004, and the authorities granted an exemption from the plan for development and operation (PDO) requirement in 2006. The field is developed with three production wells and one water injection well drilled from the Gullfaks C facility. Production started in 2006.

Reservoir

Gimle produces oil from sandstone of Middle Jurassic age in the Brent Group. The main reservoir is in a downfaulted structure northeast of the Gullfaks field at a depth of 2,900 metres. Reservoir quality is generally good. There is also oil in sandstone of Late Triassic and Early Jurassic age.

Recovery

The field is produced by partial pressure support from water injection.

Transport

The production from Gimle is processed on the Gullfaks C facility and transported together with oil and gas from the Gullfaks field.

Status

Production from Gimle has been temporarily shut down for four months in 2017. Drilling of a new production well is being evaluated. A well was drilled to the eastern part of Gimle in 2017; it proved a deposit subsequently defined as a new field: Sindre.
