PRODUCTION FROM THE FIELD

Development

Knarr is a field in the northern part of the North Sea, 50 kilometres northeast of the Snorre field. The water depth is 400 metres. Knarr was discovered in 2008, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 2011. The Knarr field consists of two segments, Knarr West and Knarr Central. The development comprises a floating production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO) and two subsea templates, including six production and injection wells. Production started in 2015.

Reservoir

Knarr produces oil from Lower Jurassic sandstone in the Cook Formation. The reservoirs lie at a depth of 3,800 metres and have moderate to good quality.

Recovery

The field is produced with water injection for pressure maintenance.

Transport

Oil is processed and stored on the Knarr FPSO and offloaded to shuttle tankers for export. Gas is exported via the Far North Liquids and Associated Gas System (FLAGS) to St Fergus in the UK.

Status

The field is in tail phase and is producing with declining oil production and increasing water cut. A new production well is being drilled in 2020.
