Visund South flow starts offshore Norway

Production has begun from Visund South oil and gas field in the North Sea offshore Norway (OGJ Online, June 10, 2011).

The start-up is the first in operator Statoil’s fast-track scheme for developing offshore fields.

Visund South encompasses the Pan and Pandora discoveries 10 km from the Gullfaks C and Visund A platforms. Development involves a four-slot subsea template through which three have been drilled and tied back to Gullfaks C.

Statoil estimates reserves at 67 million boe, one-fourth oil and the rest natural gas. It didn’t report flow rates.

Interests are Statoil 53.2%, Total 7.75%, Petoro 30%, and ConocoPhillips 9.1%.
