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 is developed with five single wells, tied-back to the Edvard Grieg field.
ReservoirSolveig produces 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 is produced by pressure support from water injection.
TransportThe well stream is transported via the Edvard Grieg field and onward by pipeline to the Sture terminal. The gas is exported via the Scottish Area Gas Evacuation (SAGE) infrastructure to the St Fergus terminal in the UK.
StatusProduction from Solveig started in October 2021.
