  1. Disconnected Njord platform arrives in Stord

    Offshore staff STAVANGER, Norway – The Njord A semisubmersible platform arrived at Kværner Stord, western Norway yesterday following a tow from the Njord field location in the Norwegian Sea. Operator Statoil says the platform will now be reinforced and renovated to make it fit to continue production beyond 2030. Njord came onstream in the late 1990s, and oil and gas production on Njord were originally expected to cease in 2013. However, as Snorre Grande, project director for the Njord Future project , explained: “We have been able to recover more of the reserves than originally expected, and following new discoveries and the Snilehorn development, field production will continue for at least 10 more years… “The commercial basis for the Njord A renovation still requires production from Njord and Hyme, where we have identified 177 MMboe remaining to be produced.” Snilehorn , which will likely be tied into Njord, also contains 66 MMbbl. To enable Njord A to receive these resources, the hull must first be reinforced, followed by extensive upgrades onboard the platform. Njord has been onstream for 6,821 days and 54 wells have been drilled, including exploration wells. To date 167 MMbbl of oil and 41 bcm of gas have been produced. A new, fortified Njord platform may additionally serve as a field center in the future for new discoveries in the area.  Since production on Njord and Hyme was shut down in June, preparations for the Njord A tow-in continued through the summer, including tasks such as securing of wells and facilities before the disconnection. The Njord Bravo storage vessel arrived at Umoe Sterkoder in July, and the vessel’s condition is undergoing scrutiny. The partners will decide later this year whether to extend the vessel’s life or to build a new one. 08/26/2016 Share your news with Offshore at news@offshore-mag.com
