DevelopmentTommeliten A is a field in the southern part of the Norwegian sector in the North Sea, 25 kilometres southwest of the Ekofisk field. The field is located on the border to the UK sector and the Norwegian share of the field is 99.57 per cent. The water depth is 75 metres. Tommeliten A was proven in 1977 and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 2022. The field is developed with two subsea templates tied-back to the Ekofisk Comlpex.
ReservoirThe reservoir contains gas condensate and volatile oil in chalk in the Paleocene Ekofisk Formation and the Upper Cretaceous Tor Formation at a depth of about 3000 metres. The reservoir quality varies across both formations and is affected by faults and fractures.
Recovery strategyThe field is being produced by pressure depletion.
TransportThe well stream is transported to Ekofisk Centre by pipelines. Oil and gas are routed to export pipelines via the processing facility at Ekofisk to Teesside in the UK and to Emden in Germany.
StatusThe field started production in October 2023.
