Statoil submits plan for Hyme development

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, May 12
-- Statoil has submitted to the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy (MPE) a 4.5 billion kroner plan for development and operation (PDO) of Hyme oil field (formerly Gygrid) in the Norwegian Sea. Hyme will tie into existing infrastructure on the Njord A semisubmersible production platform, which has spare capacity.

Discovered in June 2009, Hyme field is about 19 km northeast of Njord field in 250 m of water. Statoil expects first oil from Hyme in first-quarter 2013.

The Hyme PDO is the fourth fast-track development plan that Statoil has submitted to MPE this year. It previously submitted fast-track development plans for Visund South, Vigdis North-East, and Katla.

“By halving the time from the discovery to first oil by means of standard solutions, smaller discoveries become profitable,” says Ivar Aasheim, head of Statoil’s field development on the Norwegian continental shelf.

Hyme is an oil discovery on the Halten Terrace and the development will include a production well and a water injection well through a subsea template with four well slots.

”Tying in Hyme will extend Njord’s productive life from 2015 to 2020 and will help revitalize and ensure good utilization of our long-standing experience and skills in this area,” says Arve Rennemo, head of Njord operations.

Statoil already has let most of the contracts for the development, as follows:

• Subsea production system to FMC Technologies Inc. in fourth-quarter 2010 through an option in the Visund South contract.

• Umbilical to Nexans in first-quarter 2011.

• Flexible risers to NKT Holding AS in first-quarter 2011.

• Subsea template installation to Subsea7 SA in first-quarter 2011.

• Pipelines and other manned installations to Technip in first-quarter 2011.

The company plans to let the last major contract, which covers platform modifications on the Njord field, in this year’s second quarter.

Operator Statoil holds a 35% interest in the field. Partners are Petoro AS 7.5%, GDF Suez E&P Norge AS 20%, E.On Ruhrgas Norge AS 17.5%, VNG Norge AS 2.5%, and Norwegian Energy Co. ASA 17.5%.
