DevelopmentThe Symra field is in the central North Sea, five kilometres northeast of the Ivar Aasen field. The field consists of several segments. The water depth is 110 metres. Symra was discovered in 2018, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in June 2023. The development concept includes a subsea template with four wells tied-back to the Ivar Aasen platform.
ReservoirThe reservoirs contain oil in the Zechstein Group of Permian age and in the underlying basement rocks. In addition, oil was proven in intra-Heather sandstone of Middle Jurassic age. The reservoirs are at a depth of 1800 metres and have varying properties.
Recovery strategyThe field will be produced by pressure depletion. Pressure support by water injection will also be considered.
TransportThe well stream will be routed by pipeline via Ivar Aasen to the Edvard Grieg facility for final processing and further transport.
StatusThe field is under development, and the production is planned to start in 2027.
