PRODUCTION FROM THE FIELD

Status

Production from Marulk is limited by the commercial agreement with the Norne licensees and the gas handling capacity on the Norne FPSO. Excess capacity in recent years has made it possible to process larger volumes of gas from Marulk. In 2019, a new production well was drilled in the Lange Formation.

Transport

The well stream is sent to the Norne FPSO for processing. The gas is then transported via the Åsgard Transport System (ÅTS) to the Kårstø terminal.

Recovery

The field is produced by pressure depletion.

Reservoir

Marulk produces gas from Cretaceous sandstone in the Lysing Formation. The reservoir lies at a depth of 2,800 metres. Gas is also present in Cretaceous sandstone in the Lange Formation. Both reservoirs are in turbidite fans and have moderate to good quality.

Development

Marulk is a field in the Norwegian Sea, 25 kilometres southwest of the Norne field. The water depth is 370 metres. Marulk was discovered in 1992, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 2010. The field is developed with a subsea template tied-back to the production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO) Norne. Production started in 2012.
