PRODUCTION FROM THE FIELD

Development

Skarv is a field in the northern part of the Norwegian Sea, 35 kilometres southwest of the Norne field. The water depth in the area is 350-450 metres. Skarv was discovered in 1998, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 2007. Skarv is a joint development of the Skarv and Idun deposits. The development concept is a production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO) with five subsea templates with fifteen wells. Production started in 2013. The Ærfugl field will be developed as a tie-in to the Skarv FPSO.

Reservoir

Skarv produces gas and oil from Lower and Middle Jurassic sandstone in the Tilje, Ile and Garn Formations. There are also underlying oil zones in the Tilje and Garn Formations. The Garn Formation has good reservoir quality, while the Tilje Formation has relatively poor quality. The reservoirs are divided into several fault segments and lie at a depth of 3,300-3,700 metres.

Recovery

The field is produced with pressure support by gas injection and gas lift.

Transport

The oil is offloaded to shuttle tankers, while the gas is transported to the Kårstø terminal in an 80-kilometre pipeline connected to the Åsgard Transport System (ÅTS).

Status

In 2017, gas injection was increased to improve oil recovery. Gas blowdown has been delayed. Evaluation of potential infill drilling as well as prospect evaluation is ongoing.
