DevelopmentHanz is a field in the North Sea, 12 kilometres north of the Ivar Aasen field. The water depth is 115 metres. Hanz was discovered in 1997 and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 2013. The field will be developed with subsea templates tied-back to Ivar Aasen.
ReservoirThe reservoir contains oil with a minor gas cap. It is in the Draupne Formation of Late Jurassic age at a depth of 2,350 metres. The reservoir is in presumably shallow marine sandstone with good properties.
RecoveryThe field will be produced by pressure support from water injection.
TransportAfter initial processing on the Ivar Aasen field, the well stream will be transported to the Edvard Grieg field for final processing and export.
StatusThe field is currently under development. The development schedule for production start-up depends on available processing capacities on Ivar Aasen.
