PRODUCTION FROM THE FIELD

Development

Statfjord Nord is a field in the Tampen area in the northern part of the North Sea, 17 kilometres north of the Statfjord field. The water depth is 250-290 metres. Statfjord Nord was discovered in 1977, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 1990. The field has been developed with two production templates and one water injection template tied-back to the Statfjord C facility. Production started in 1995.

Reservoir

Statfjord Nord produces oil from Middle Jurassic sandstone in the Brent Group and Upper Jurassic sandstone in the Munin Formation. The reservoirs lie at a depth of 2,600 metres and are of good quality.

Recovery

The field is produced with pressure maintenance from water injection.

Transport

The well stream is transported in two pipelines to the Statfjord C facility for processing, storage and export. The fields Statfjord Nord, Statfjord Øst and Sygna have a shared process module on Statfjord C. Oil is loaded onto tankers and gas is exported through Tampen Link and the Far North Liquids and Gas System (FLAGS) pipeline to the UK.

Status

No new wells have been drilled since 2016, but a well intervention was performed in 2019 to increase oil rates and reduce water cut. New wells are possible because of a lifetime extension of the Statfjord C facility.
