PRODUCTION FROM THE FIELD

Development

Urd is a field in the Norwegian Sea, five kilometres northeast of the Norne field. The water depth is 380 metres. Urd was discovered in 2000, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 2004. The field has three deposits: Svale, Svale North and Stær. The Urd field has been developed with subsea templates tied-back to the Norne production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO). Production started in 2005 from Svale, from Stær in 2006 and from Svale North in 2016.

Reservoir

Urd produces oil from Lower to Middle Jurassic sandstone in the Åre, Tilje and Ile Formations. The field is structurally complex and segmented. The reservoirs lie at depths of 1,800-2,300 metres and have moderate to good quality.

Recovery

The field is produced by water injection and gas lift.

Transport

The well stream is processed on the Norne FPSO, and the oil is offloaded to shuttle tankers together with oil from the Norne field. The gas is sent from Norne to Åsgard, and then exported via the Åsgard Transport System (ÅTS) to the Kårstø terminal.

Status

Production performance has been close to expectation. Challenges for Urd are the structural complexity of the field, as well as poor pressure support and increasing water cut. In addition, there are slugging and sand control challenges in production and injection wells. An infill production well was drilled in 2021.
