Gullfaks subsea compression proceeding

By OGJ editors

Statoil and Petoro have agreed to install subsea gas compression to handle production from the Brent reservoir at Gullfaks South oil field in the North Sea offshore Norway (OGJ Online, Apr. 13, 2012).

Statoil, operator with 70% interest, says the installation will boost production by 22 million boe/d. The project, including two 5-Mw wet-gas compressors on a subsea template in 135 m of water, is to be complete in 2015. Power and control modules will be integrated on the Gullfaks C platform 15 km away.

Statoil also is installing subsea gas compression in the Asgard area of the Norwegian Sea, where completion also is due in 2015 (OGJ Online, Mar. 28, 2012).
