Norway's Den norske stats oljeselskap AS has declared commerciality for South Gullfaks oil field in the Norwegian North Sea. One idea for field development is to use extended reach wells drilled from Gullfaks A platform, which lies 10 km from the South Gullfaks reservoir, to allow early production. Drilling such a well would require Statoil to break its own extended reach drilling world record of 7 km, set early this year in Statfjord field (OGJ, Feb. 15, p. 31).
