Six wells have been drilled to this point, yielding an enormous quantity of knowledge. In addition, the Wisting group has efficiently mixed conventional seismic with Controlled Source Electro Magnetic (CSEM) within the technical research for subsurface optimization.
“Data from the newest appraisal effectively and the seismic knowledge acquired have given us a greater understanding of the realm and the sources. We now see the elevated potential of Wisting”, mentioned Knut Mauseth, Senior Vice President OMV (Norge) AS.
The present reference idea for the Wisting growth is an FPSO with a subsea manufacturing system consisting of 19 producers and 15 water injectors.

The recoverable sources in PL 537 reported to the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate for 2018 are estimated at round 440 million barrels of oil in comparison with 350 million barrels in 2017.

Two FPSO ideas within the type of a round and a ship-shaped hull are being matured, and the ultimate idea choice within the license group is anticipated in 2020.
PL 537 was awarded through the 20th licensing spherical in 2009. Wisting is situated within the Barents Sea and was found in 2013 in exploration effectively 7324/Eight-1. OMV (Norge) AS is the operator of PL 537 with a 25 % working curiosity. The companions are Equinor Energy AS (35%), Petoro (20%) and Idemitsu Petroleum Norge (20%).
