Dutch North Sea infill well flows 3,500 b/d

Dana Petroleum PLC has started production from an infill well in Hanze oil field in the Dutch North Sea at a rate of 3,500 b/d (OGJ Online, June 14, 2010).

The start-up nearly doubled the field’s production, Dana said.

Drilled by the Noble Lynda Bossler jack up, the Hanze Infill Well A06 is one of five Dana is drilling near existing infrastructure offshore the Netherlands.

Earlier this year, it drilled the P11-08 exploratory well from its De Ruyter platform, 90 km south of Hanze (OGJ Online, Dec. 28, 2004). It’s evaluating results.

De Ruyter and Hanze fields each has a steel gravity storage platform with an integrated deck. Oil is offloaded directly onto shuttle tankers through a single anchor loading system.

Dana operates Hanze field with a 45% interest. Partners are Oranje-Nassau Energie BV, 35%, and Dyas BV, 20%.
