Summary Information

  • Operator: Statoil
  • Country: Norway
  • Location: blocks 30/2 and 30/3, North Sea
  • Production start: 2001
  • Partners:
  • Type: Gas And Condensate
  • Estimated Reserves: Original
    • 5.1 million Sm³ oil
    • 17.5 billion Sm³ gas
    • 0.1 million tonnes NGL
  • Production Volume: 2013E
    • Oil: 950 barrels/day
    • Gas: 0.36 billion Sm³


  • Huldra lies in blocks 30/2 and 30/3, about 16 kilometres from Veslefrikk Oil And Gas Field
  • Huldra has been developed with a wellhead platform which ranks as the first Statoil offshore installation designed for normally unstaffed operation. This facility is being run from Veslefrikk B.
  • Gas from Huldra is piped in a dedicated 140-kilometre line to the Heimdal Gas Field for processing and onward transmission by pipeline to continental Europe. Condensate is piped to Veslefrikk for processing.


  • Aker Verdal: Construction of the platform jacket
  • Saipem:
    • Phase 1 - platform jacket installation
    • Phase 2 - platform topsides installation
  • Mærsk: Drilling of production wells using the Mærsk Gallant rig
  • Constructed at Kværner's Rosenberg yard in Stavanger, the Huldra topside was shipped out and installed on the jacket in the spring of 2001.


  • 1982 - Statoil proved the field
  • 1999 - Development work began
  • 2001 - The gas and condensate field was brought on stream
  • 2011 - A fire occurred in an air compressor compartment
  • 2014 - The field is closed down


  • The reservoir is in Middle Jurassic sandstones of the Brent Group in a rotated fault block. The reservoir initially had high pressure and high temperature and lies at a depth of 3 500 – 3 900 metres. There are many small faults in the field, and reservoir communication is uncertain, but the production history indicates two main segments without pressure communication.
