PRODUCTION FROM THE FIELD

Development

Volve is a field in the central part of the North Sea, five kilometres north of the Sleipner Øst field. The water depth is 80 metres. Volve was discovered in 1993, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 2005. The field was developed with a jack-up processing and drilling facility. The vessel "Navion Saga" was used for storing stabilised oil. Production started in 2008.

Reservoir

Volve produced oil from sandstone of Middle Jurassic age in the Hugin Formation. The reservoir is at a depth of 2,700-3,100 metres. The western part of the structure is heavily faulted and communication across the faults is uncertain.

Recovery

The field was produced with water injection for pressure support.

Transport

The oil was exported by tankers and the rich gas was transported to the Sleipner A facility for further export.

Status

A decommissioning plan was submitted in 2014. The field was shut down in 2016, and the disposal process was completed in 2018.
