Oil pipeline to serve Utsira high fields

Statoil and partners have decided on a transportation option that will allow development to proceed of Edvard Grieg and Ivar Aasen oil fields offshore Norway.

Statoil, a nonoperating partner in both fields and operator of the joint venture for oil transportation, said a 43-km, 28-in. pipeline will carry oil from Edvard Grieg field to the Grane oil pipeline, which makes landfall at Sture. It will be called the Edvard Grieg pipeline.

Production is to begin in 2015 at Edvard Grieg, which is operated by Lundin Norway and will process wellstreams from Ivar Aasen. The latter field, operated by DNO, is to begin producing in 2016. A transport decision was a condition of development of the fields, which are in an active exploration area called the Utsira high between Sleipner and Grane oil fields.

Partners in the transport joint venture are Lundin Norway 30%, Statoil 20%, Wintershall Norge 18%, DNO 14%, OMV Norge 12%, and Bayerngas Norge 6%.

Subject to approval by the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy, the pipeline will be installed in the summer of 2014, with tie-in operations in 2015.
