PRODUCTION FROM THE FIELD

Development

Nordøst Frigg is a field in the central part of the North Sea. The water depth is 110 metres. The field was discovered in 1974, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 1980. Nordøst-Frigg was developed with a seabed template with six wells and was remotely operated from the Frigg field using a control tower. The control tower consisted of a deck and a 126-metre-high steel structure attached to a concrete foundation. Production started in 1983.

Reservoir

Nordøst Frigg produced gas from sandstone of Eocene age in the Frigg Formation. The reservoir lies at a depth of 1,950 metres. It has pressure communication with the reservoir on the Frigg field via the aquifer.

Recovery

The field was produced by pressure depletion.

Transport

The well stream was sent via pipeline to Frigg (TCP2) for further processing before export through the Frigg Norwegian Pipeline to St Fergus in the UK.

Status

The field was shut down in 1993 and the facility was removed in 1996. A production licence comprising the Nordøst Frigg field was awarded in the Awards in Predefined Areas (APA) 2016 licensing round. The redevelopment of the Nordøst Frigg field is planned as a subsea development. It is being considered as part of a larger development in the area between the Oseberg and Alvheim fields.
