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 is included in an amended plan for development and operation (PUD) for the Ivar Aasen field. Hanz 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 2350 metres. It is in presumably deep marine sandstone with good reservoir properties.
Recovery strategyThe 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 under development and the production is planned to start in 2024.
