PRODUCTION FROM THE FIELD

Høykontrast Modus

Development

Morvin is a field in the Norwegian Sea, 15 kilometres west of the Åsgard field. The water depth is 360 metres. Morvin was discovered in 2001, and the plan for development and production (PDO) was approved in 2008. The field is developed with two 4-slot subsea templates, tied to the Åsgard B facility. Production started in 2010.

Reservoir

Morvin produces gas and oil from Jurassic sandstone in the Tilje, Tofte, Ile, Garn and Spekk Formations. The reservoirs lie in a rotated and tilted fault block at a depth of 4,500-4,700 metres. They have high pressure and high temperature (HPHT). The Garn Formation is relatively homogeneous, while the Ile Formation is more heterogeneous. The Spekk Formation has good reservoir properties.

Recovery

The field is produced by pressure depletion.

Transport

The well stream from Morvin is transported by a heated, 20-kilometre pipeline to the Åsgard B facility for processing and further transport.

Status

The main challenge on the Morvin field is drillability. The cost-benefit factor of drilling new wells is being compared with well intervention operations to regain production in existing wells.
