Oil & Gas: Ready for Gudrun development

The plan for development and operation (PDO) of the North Sea Gudrun field was approved by the Norwegian Parliament this week. Production is scheduled to start in the first quarter of 2014.

 “This is an important day for us,” says Øystein Michelsen, executive vice president for Exploration & Production Norway (EPN). “The Gudrun field will add important volume, improve the capacity utilisation on Sleipner and help maintain the production level on the Norwegian continental shelf.”

 

Gudrun is to be developed with a platform resting on the seabed including a traditional steel jacket weighing 7400 tonnes. The platform will have a processing facility for partial processing of oil and gas, before the hydrocarbons are piped to the Sleipner field. On Sleipner the oil and gas from Gudrun will be further processed before the oil is transported to Kårstø together with the Sleipner condensate. Carbon dioxide will be separated from the gas before it is exported to Europe via the Gassled system. Power to the Gudrun platform will be supplied by cable from Sleipner.

 

Investment in field installations, pipelines and drilling of production wells will total almost NOK 21 billion.
