PRODUCTION FROM THE FIELD

Development

Morvin is a field in the Norwegian Sea, 15 kilometres west of the Åsgard field. The water depth in the area is 350 metres. Morvin was discovered in 2001, and the plan for development and production (PDO) was approved in 2008. The field is developed with two four-slot subsea templates tied-back to the Åsgard B facility. Production started in 2010 from four production wells: one from the northern template (B), and three from the southern template (A).

Reservoir

Morvin produces gas and oil from Middle Jurassic sandstone in a rotated and tilted fault block. The reservoir lies at a depth of 4,500-4,700 metres and has high pressure and high temperature (HPHT). The Garn Formation is relatively homogeneous, while the Ile Formation is more heterogeneous. When drilling in the south, the Spekk Formation was discovered, with good reservoir properties. In addition, Morvin is producing from the Tilje and Tofte Formations. There is some water production from the Tilje Formation.

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

All three wells in the south have had scaling problems and have been treated. Due to Åsgard subsea compression, the production from Morvin is routed to the test separator when it is available. An alternative separator is being evaluated to increase uptime on Morvin. A drillability study has been initiated to investigate the feasibility of drilling through depleted reservoir zones; this may open for the possibility of drilling new infill wells.
