Neptune Energy has kicked off its Fenja drilling marketing campaign, positioned offshore Norway, following the spud of the primary nicely.
Fenja is Neptune’s first operated growth venture on the Norwegian Shelf and is estimated to comprise 97 million boe.
Fenja will ship round 40 kboepd at a plateau, in response to Neptune’s assertion on Tuesday.
Neptune’s Director of Projects and Engineering in Norway, Erik Oppedal, mentioned: “Sunday’s drilling start-up represents an necessary milestone within the venture.
“The goal of those first geo-pilots is to achieve a greater understanding of the reservoir and to optimize the placement of the manufacturing wells“.
Located within the Norwegian Sea 120 kilometres north of Kristiansund and at a water depth of 320 metres, the subsea discipline might be developed as a tie-back to the Njord-A platform.
At 36 kilometres, it is going to 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 fuel injector.
The fuel injector might be transformed to a fuel producer in direction of the top of discipline life.
Three drilling phases
Neptune famous that the Fenja drilling marketing campaign has been modified to deal with delays ensuing from the influence of COVID-19 with the licence companions opting to hold out drilling in three phases over the following two years.
This additionally offers higher flexibility to answer subsurface insights gained from the geo-pilots, and the present difficult market situations, Neptune defined.
The drilling program for 2020 consists of two prime holes and two geo-pilots, with an anticipated length of 85 days.
The drilling program for 2020 might be carried out by the West Phoenix drilling rig, operated by Seadrill.
The West Phoenix has additionally just lately drilled a wildcat nicely for Neptune close to the Heidrun discipline within the Norwegian Sea. The nicely was dry.
Production start-up at Fenja is predicted by 4Q 2021.
Fenja licence companions are Neptune Energy (operator and 30%), Vår Energi, (45%), Suncor (17.5%), and DNO (7.5%).
