London-based Neptune Energy suggested that its drilling marketing campaign on the Fenja area offshore Norway is now underway. The spud of the primary effectively is carried out by the West Phoenix semi-submersible
Fenja is Neptune’s first operated growth mission on the Norwegian Shelf and is estimated to comprise 97 million boe. Fenja will ship round 40,000 barrels of oil equal per day at plateau.
Neptune’s Director of Projects and Engineering in Norway, Erik Oppedal, mentioned: “Sunday’s drilling start-up represents an vital milestone within the mission. The goal of those first geo-pilots is to achieve a greater understanding of the reservoir and to optimize the situation of the manufacturing wells.
“As our first operated growth within the Norwegian North Sea, Fenja is an thrilling mission for Neptune and underlines the significance of the area to our geographically-diverse enterprise.”
Located within the Norwegian Sea 120 kilometres north of Kristiansund and at a water depth of 320 metres, the subsea area will likely be developed as a tie-back to the Njord-A platform. At 36 kilometres, will probably be the world’s longest electrically trace-heated pipe-in-pipe subsea growth.
The growth plan combines two subsea templates with six wells, together with three oil producers, two water injectors and one gasoline injector. The gasoline injector will likely be transformed to a gasoline producer in the direction of the top of area life.
The Fenja drilling marketing campaign has been modified to handle delays ensuing from the impression of COVID-19 with the licence companions opting to hold out drilling in three phases over the following two years. This additionally supplies better flexibility to answer subsurface insights gained from the geo-pilots, and the present difficult market situations.
The drilling program for 2020 consists of two high holes and two geopilots, with an anticipated period of 85 days. The drilling program for 2020 will likely be carried out by the West Phoenix drilling rig, operated by Seadrill.
Production start-up at Fenja is anticipated by This fall 2021.
Fenja licence companions: Neptune Energy (Operator and 30%), Vår Energi, (45%), Suncor (17.5%) and DNO (7.5%)
Neptune is at the moment working three growth initiatives, all subsea-tiebacks to current infrastructure. Our goal is to develop these quicker, cheaper and cleaner. The Duva-field and the Gjøa P1-field are being developed in parallel and will likely be tied again to the Gjøa-platform. The Fenja-field within the Norwegian Sea will likely be related to Njord A. In addition, we function the brownfield mission Nova, on behalf of Wintershall Dea. Nova will likely be tied to Gjøa.
