Aker BP obtains consent to tie Oda to Ula field

Norway’s offshore safety watchdog, the Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA), has given Aker BP consent to connect Centrica’s Oda field to its Ula platform in the North Sea off Norway, 

The Oda oil field, previously called Butch, was discovered in 2011 in the southern part of the Norwegian North Sea, approximately 14 kilometers east of the Ula field.

As the operator, Centrica submitted the plan for the Oda field Development and Operation to the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy at the end of November 2016.

The proposed development will include a 4-slot seabed template with two production wells, and one water injection well, which will tie back to the Ula platform.

The PSA said on Tuesday that the operator of the Ula field, Aker BP, was given consent to connect Oda to the Ula field on February 7. The safety body added that the production from the Oda field is scheduled to begin in third quarter of 2019.

Regarding the Oda field development, in December 2016, Subsea 7 received a contract from Centrica for the engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) of subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines (SURF) including the production pipeline, water injection line, umbilical and related subsea services for the field.
