PRODUCTION FROM THE FIELD

Development

Sindre is a field in the northern part of the North Sea, three kilometres northeast of the Gullfaks field. The water depth is 250 metres. Sindre was discovered and granted exemption from a plan for development and operation (PDO) in 2017. The field is developed with one production well drilled from the Gullfaks C platform. Production started in 2017.

Recovery strategy

The field is produced by pressure depletion, but rapid pressure decline may necessitate pressure support.

Transport

The well stream from Sindre is processed together with the production from the Gimle field at the Gullfaks C facility, and transported further with oil and gas from the Gullfaks field.  

Status

Due to pressure decline and low production, the well is temporarily shut in. There are no remaining recoverable resources in Sindre, and the focus is on developing resources in nearby deposits. New drainage strategies for the Sindre area are being evaluated.

Reservoir

Sindre contains oil in Upper Triassic to Lower Jurassic sandstone in the Lunde Formation, Statfjord Group and Dunlin Group. The main reservoir lies at a depth of 3,100 metres. The reservoir quality is good, but sealing faults reduce communication in the reservoir. Reservoir is also identified in Middle Jurassic sandstone in the Brent Group.
