Description

  • The field formerly known as Alfa Sentral, is located 21 kilometres from the Sleipner Gas And Condensate Field.
  • The Utgard development will include two wells in a standard subsea concept, with one drilling target on each side of the median line.
  • Gas and condensate will be piped through a new pipeline to the Sleipner field for processing and further transportation to the market.
  • The Utgard gas has a high CO2 content
  • The Utgard wells are scheduled to come on stream at the end of 2019
  • In the plateau phase the field will produce approximately some 7,000 Sm3 per day of oil equivalent.
  • The gas will then be exported on to the Gassled pipeline system, while the unstable condensate will be transported to Kårstø for further processing and export.

Contractors

  • Wood Group Kenny:
    • FEED support for the pipeline system
    • Detailed design scope of the subsea tie-back
