Norway approves Tordis IOR project

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Dec. 21 -- Statoil ASA received approval from the Norwegian government for a 2 billion kroner improved oil recovery (IOR) project at Tordis oil field in the North Sea.

The IOR project, scheduled to start in the second half of 2006, is expected to boost recovery by about 35 million bbl. It will also reduce discharges of produced water to the sea.

"The project will be the first in the world to adopt full-scale subsea separation," Statoil said.

The subsea separation system is due on stream in October 2007. Kongsberg FMC, under a 625 million kroner contract, will build the subsea separation station, which will be lifted into place in 2007 by Saipem UK under a 50 million kroner contract (OGJ Online, Nov. 10, 2005).

Stolt Offshore was awarded a 200 million kroner contract for marine operations in the field. Tordis is produced through subsea installations tied back to Staoil's Gullfaks C platform.
