PRODUCTION FROM THE FIELD

Development

Glitne is a field in the central part of the North Sea, 40 kilometres north of the Sleipner area. The water depth is 110 metres. Glitne was discovered in 1995, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 2000. The field was developed with six horizontal production wells and one water injection well, tied-back to the production and storage vessel "Petrojarl 1". Production started in 2001.

Reservoir

Glitne produced oil from sandstone of Paleocene age in the upper part of the Heimdal Formation. The reservoir is in a deep marine fan system at a depth of 2,150 metres.

Recovery

The field was produced with pressure support from a large natural aquifer in the Heimdal Formation. Associated gas was used for gas lift in the horizontal wells until 2012.

Transport

Oil from Glitne was processed and stored on the production vessel and exported by tankers. Excess gas was injected into the Utsira Formation.

Status

The field was shut down in 2013, and decommissioning was completed in 2015.
