PRODUCTION FROM THE FIELD

Development

Utgard is a field in the North Sea, straddling the sector boundary between Norway and the UK. The Norwegian share of the field is 62 per cent. Utgard is located 20 kilometres west of the Sleipner area. The water depth is 110-120 metres. The field was discovered in 1982 and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 2017. The development concept is a 4-slot subsea template with two wells tied-back to the Sleipner T facility for processing and reduction of the CO2 level in the gas. The subsea template is located in the Norwegian sector.

Reservoir

Utgard produces gas with high CO2 content and condensate from sandstone of Middle Jurassic age in the Hugin Formation. The reservoir possibly has a thin oil zone. The reservoir lies at a depth of 3,700 metres and has good quality.

Recovery strategy

Utgard is produced by pressure depletion.

Transport

The well stream from the Utgard field is processed at the Sleipner T facility. The gas is exported to the Gassled pipeline system. Unstable condensate is transported via the existing condensate pipeline to the Kårstø terminal for further processing and export.

Status

Production from Utgard started in September 2019.
