Halliburton to support development drilling at Maria offshore Norway

Offshore staff

STAVANGER, Norway – Wintershall Norge has awarded Halliburton a four-year service contract to support its exploration and development projects offshore Norway.

The two companies have started collaborating on detailed engineering work prior to the start of drilling for the Maria development on the Haltern Terrace in the Norwegian Sea during the first half of 2017.

Early next year, Halliburton will provide services supporting the drilling of six development wells on Maria’s subsea templates located at a depth of around 300 m (984 ft).

The contractor will provide drilling services and associated tools, drilling and completion fluids, cementing, and coring, with an option for P&A services.

Maria’s two templates will be linked via a subsea tieback to the Kristin, Heidrun, and Åsgard B production platforms. The well stream will head to Kristin for processing with Heidrun supplying water for injection into Maria’s reservoir.

Åsgard B will provide lift gas via the Tyrihans D field subsea template.

The processed oil will be shipped to the Åsgard field for storage and offloading to shuttle tankers, while the gas will be exported via the Åsgard Transport System pipeline to Kårstø.

Maria is 20 km (12.4 mi) east of the Kristin field and 45 km (28 mi) south of the Heidrun field.
