PRODUCTION FROM THE FIELD

Status

The field is affected by pressure depletion due to depressurisation of the Statfjord field. Current production is mainly from the one well with gas lift, drilled from Statfjord C. New wells and projects are possible because of a lifetime extension of the Statfjord C facility.

Development

Statfjord Øst is a field in the Tampen area in the North Sea, seven kilometres northeast of the Statfjord field. The water depth is 150-190 metres. Statfjord Øst was discovered in 1976, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 1990. The field has been developed with two subsea production templates and one water injection template, tied-back to the Statfjord C platform. In addition, two production wells have been drilled from Statfjord C. Production started in 1994.

Reservoir

Statfjord Øst produces oil from Middle Jurassic sandstone in the Brent Group. The reservoir has good quality and lies at 2,400 metres depth.

Recovery

The field was originally produced with water injection, but is now produced by pressure depletion and with gas lift in one well.

Transport

The well stream is transported in two pipelines to the Statfjord C facility for processing, storage and export. Statfjord Øst, Statfjord Nord 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.
