The Hyme oil field on stream

This week, Statoil and its partners began production from the Hyme oil field in the southern part of the Norwegian Sea. Hyme is the second of Statoil’s 12 so-called fast-track projects.

The Hyme field is build with a subsea template tied in to existing infrastructure on the Njord A platform.

“The field came on stream one month earlier than we assumed in the plan for development and operation (PDO). The project execution period from we decided to use Njord A as a tie-in platform and to first oil is thus slightly more than two years, which we are very pleased with,” says Halfdan Knudsen, head of the “fast-track” portfolio in Development and Production Norway (DPN).

The “fast-track” projects consist of discoveries made close to existing fields. In the longer term the aim is to bring these projects from discovery to first oil within 30 months.

The Hyme field was discovered at Haltenbanken in June 2009, 19 kilometres north-east of the Njord A platform. It is tied in to existing infrastructure on Njord A. Hyme extends the production life of the Njord field from 2015 to 2020. The field development plan includes a production well and a water injection well drilled through a subsea template with four well slots. The installation of five new risers and Njord A modifications to receive Hyme production are also part of the project. The investments total some NOK 4.5 billion.

“This development will revitalise the entire area, open for further expansion and increase the production life of Njord,” Knudsen says.

Due to the high reservoir complexity an unconventional well solution has been chosen for Hyme. It involves the use of a multilateral well for optimal drainage of the reservoir.

Estimated volumes according to Statoil: 30 million barrels of oil equivalent. Mainly oil, and some gas.
