HOUSTON, Feb. 20 -- Statoil ASA reported that reserves in Mikkel gas field in the Norwegian Sea are now put at 28 billion cu m of gas and 40 million bbl of condensate20% higher than estimated on the original plan for development and operation (OGJ Online, Feb. 8, 2002).
Production started up Oct. 1, 2003. Production from Mikkel currently is averaging 5.8 MM cu m/day of gas. Its well stream is piped to subsea installations on the Åsgard's Midgard reservoir before being transported to the Shell-operated Åsgard B production platform. Following separation, the gas is piped through the Åsgard trunkline to the processing complex at Kårstø, north of Stavanger.
Mikkel gas field development costs were put at 1.8 billion kroner.
