DONG developing Hejre field offshore Denmark

By OGJ editors

DONG Energy and Bayerngas will develop high-pressure, high-temperature Hejre oil and natural gas field in the northern Danish Central Graben offshore Denmark.

Development will include installation of a production, processing, and accommodation platform on Danish North Sea License 5/98 with a steel jacket in 70 km of water and drilling of five production wells. Drilling of an additional seven wells, including satellites, is possible, according to documents at the Danish Energy Agency (DEA).

A 90-km pipeline will carry crude oil to a pumping platform on Gorm oil field southeast of Hejre. Natural gas will move northeast through a 24-km pipeline to a connection with the South Arne-Nybro pipeline.

Hejre development will require modifications to the Gorm E platform and to processing facilities at an onshore terminal at Fredericia, Denmark.

DONG estimates total reserves at 170 million bbl of oil equivalent.

Production at undisclosed rates is to begin in 2015.

Hejre is a 2001 discovery by the former Phillips Petroleum International Corp. The discovery well found oil in Late Jurassic sandstones. DEA estimates reservoir depth at 16,500 ft.

DONG acquired the Danish interests of ConocoPhillips International Corp. in 2007 (OGJ Online, Mar. 23, 2007).

Interests now are DONG 60% and Bayerngas 40%.
