DevelopmentSolveig is a field in the North Sea, 15 kilometres south of the Edvard Grieg field. The water depth is 100 metres. Solveig was discovered in 2013, and subsequently delineated by appraisal wells in 2014, 2015 and 2018. The plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 2019. Solveig will be developed with five single wells, tied-back to the Edvard Grieg field.
ReservoirSolveig will produce oil from sandstone and conglomerate of Permian and Triassic age. The main reservoir was formed in small basins along the southwestern flank of the South Utsira High. The reservoir contains oil with a small gas cap at a depth of 1,900 metres and has varying quality.
Recovery strategyThe field will be produced by pressure support from water injection.
TransportThe well stream will be transported via the Edvard Grieg field and onward by pipeline to the Sture terminal. The gas will be exported via the Scottish Area Gas Evacuation (SAGE) infrastructure to the St Fergus terminal in the UK.
StatusThe field is under development, and production is scheduled to start in early 2021.
