Description

  • The Gorm Field consists of two wellhead platforms, Gorm A and B, one combined wellhead and processing platform, Gorm F, one processing and accommodation platform, Gorm C, one gas flare stack, Gorm D, and one riser platform, Gorm E (owned by DONG Olierør A/S).
  • Gorm receives production from the satellite fields, Skjold, Rolf and Dagmar, as well as the oil and condensate produced in the Dan, Tyra and Halfdan Fields. The Gorm Field installations supply the Skjold Field with injection water and lift gas and the Rolf Field with electricity and lift gas. The gas produced is sent to Tyra East. The stabilized crude oil is transported ashore via the Gorm E riser platform.
  • The bulk of the water produced at Gorm, Skjold and Dagmar is injected into the Gorm and Skjold Fields, while the treated production water from Rolf is discharged into the sea.
