Norway approves Marulk field development

HOUSTON, Aug. 10--
The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate has approved plans for the development of Marulk gas-condensate field in the Norwegian Sea via two subsea wells linked to the production vessel on nearby Norne oil field.

According to DONG Energy, a partner, work already has begun because the NPD earlier this year allowed operator Eni Norge AS to sign contracts before receiving formal development approval.

The Norne production vessel will control the Marulk wells. Marulk, discovered in 1992, lies in 370 m of water about 30 km southwest of Norne.

DONG estimates total commercial reserves at 71 million boe. Production, starting in the second quarter of 2012, will be from Cretaceous Lysing and Lange sandstones at about 2,800 m.

Interests are Statoil 50%, Dong 30%, and Eni Norge 20%.
