- The Edvard Grieg field was discovered in 2007 and is located in PL338 in block 16/1 in the North Sea, approximately 180 km west of Stavanger
- The Edvard Grieg platform substructure consists of a four legged launch-installed jacket steel structure with a vertical clean face towards platform south to allow access for a jack-up drilling unit.
- The topside is a modularized processing plant, consisting of a main deck frame with equipment (C00), a process module (P00) with separately installed flare stack (F00) and a utility module with integrated living quarters (U00).
- 15 wells will be drilled, of which 12 will target the Luno area and three will target the Tellus area
- In the Luno area, nine oil producing wells and three wells that can alternate between gas injectors and water injectors are planned
- In the Tellus area, there will be two oil producers and a single water alternating gas well
- Seven oil producing wells will be drilled horizontally in the reservoir section
- The longest well will be an estimated 5.5 km in length
- In total the 15 wells will require 61 km of drilling
- The oil transport system includes a 43-kilometre long 28-inch pipeline between the Edvard Grieg platform and a new Y-connection point, which has been installed on the Grane oil pipeline about 4 kilometres from Grane and from here oil is transported by pipeline to the Sture terminal for sale
- The gas transport system includes a 94-kilometre long 16-inch pipeline from the Edvard Grieg platform to an underwater connection point (T-connection) on the Beryl pipeline. This, in turn, is connected to the Scottish Area Gas Evacuation (SAGE) Pipeline in the UK sector.

- 2007 - Edvard Grieg Oil And Gas Field Discovered
- 2012 - Statoil acquires a stake in the field
- 2012 - Plan for development and operation (PDO) approved
- 2015 - First oil produced
- The Luno and Tellus oil discoveries covers a wide range of reservoirs of different ages and qualities. The different sub-reservoirs represent one discovery of a single accumulation with a common oil-water contact.
- T he oldest reservoir on the Edvard Grieg field is found in the northern segment – the Tellus area. Well 16/1-15 drilled through a thin sandstone followed by more than 200 m with 440 million year old fractured and weathered basement rock of which almost 50 m is in the oil column.
- The main part of the Luno discovery is conglomerates and sandstones deposited during the Triassic period, around 210 million years ago. A 50 m thick Triassic Aeolian sandstone of excellent reservoir quality was encountered in well 16/1-13 in the central part of the Luno basin.
- More than 50% of the Edvard Grieg reserves are from this sandstone.
- The youngest part of the Edvard Grieg field is a shell-rich sandstone deposited in the lower Cretaceous period, around 140 million years ago.
- In summary, the reservoir rocks on the Edvard Grieg field spans an age range from 440 to 140 million years, representing a range from porous basement and conglomerates to high quality sandstone with excellent properties.
