Det norske contracts Subsea 7 for Jette installations in North Sea

Offshore staff

TRONDHEIM, Norway – Det norske oljeselskap has submitted a development plan for the Jette field in the North Sea to Norway’s Ministry of Petroleum and Energy.

CEO Erik Haugane said: “This is a small development relative to other North Sea projects, but it is our first field development as operator. We believe it is best to start off with a small-scale development before moving on to bigger projects, like Draupne. In a few years, we could also become a significant operator of field developments off Norway.”

Jette lies just east of the ExxonMobil-operated Jotun field. It will be produced via two horizontal wells tied back to the Jotun FPSO.

Det norske has awarded Subsea 7 a $60-million SURF contract for tieback of the two satellite wells. This involves engineering, procurement, fabrication and installation of a 6-km (3.7-mi) flexible flowline and jumpers, and installation of a 6-km integrated services umbilical, christmas trees and protection structures and diver assisted tie-ins.

Offshore operations will be performed during fall 2012.

Jette contains around 14 MMboe. First year production should reach around 14,000 boe/d, with estimated development costs of roughly NOK 2.5 billion. Start-up is slated for early 2013.

Det norske’s partners are Dana Petroleum, Bridge Energy, and Petoro.
