DevelopmentSkogul is a field in the central part of the North Sea, 30 kilometres northeast of the Alvheim field. The water depth is 110 metres. Skogul was proven in 2010, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in March 2018. The development concept is a two-slot subsea template including a two-lateral production well tied-in to the Alvheim production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO) via the Vilje field.
ReservoirThe reservoir contains oil with a minor gas cap in sandstone of Eocene age and has excellent properties. It lies at a depth of 2,100 metres.
Recovery strategyThe field will be produced by depletion and natural aquifer support.
TransportThe well stream will be routed by pipeline via the Vilje field to the Alvheim FPSO.
StatusProduction is planned to start in early 2020.
