Statoil starts Vigdis North-East oil flow

Statoil has started production at an undisclosed rate from Vigdis North-East oil field, a four-well subsea development in the North Sea offshore Norway (OGJ Online, Sept. 16, 2011).

The project is the third in what the company calls its fast-track development program for Norwegian offshore fields.

The Vigdis North-East wells, in about 290 m of water, are tied back to the existing Vigdis B template, which is tied back to the Snorre A platform about 7 km away.

Statoil estimates the reservoir, at about 2,600 m below the seabed, holds 37 million boe.

Statoil, operator, holds a 41.5% interest. Other interests are Petoro 30%, ExxonMobil 16.1%, Idemitsu 9.6%, and RWE Dea 2.8%.
