STAVANGER, Norway – Statoil says drilling efficiency measures helped cut capex for the Fram C project in the North Sea by around NOK200 million ($24.4 million).
Fram C East is a long production well drilled by the Stena Don from the existing Fram subsea template. Production will be tied back to the Troll C platform.
From there, gas will be transported via Troll A to Kollsnes, while the oil will be piped to Mongstad for further processing.
Originally Statoil budgeted NOK800 million ($97.6 million) for the project, but various measures such as a smart well concept cut the final figure to NOK600 million ($73.2 million).
Recoverable resources at Fram C are estimated at 18.2 MMboe of oil and 1.6 bcm of gas.
Partners in the project are ExxonMobil, Engie, and Idemitsu.
