DEA files PDO for Dvalin (ex-Zidane) field

Oil firm DEA has submitted the Plan for Development and Operation (PDO) for the Dvalin field (previously named Zidane) to the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy in Norway.

Dvalin, located in the Norwegian Sea some 15 kilometers north-west of Heidrun and 290 kilometers from Nyhamna in Mid-Norway, will be the company’s first operated field development project in Norway.

The Dvalin licensees plan to produce a total volume of approximately 18.2 billion cubic meters of natural gas from two reservoirs. The development cost is estimated to 1.1 billion Euros (10 billion Norwegian Kroner), with planned production start in 2020.

The first major gas discovery at the field was reported in September 2010, when a gas-bearing reservoir with a thickness of 150 meters was encountered in the Fangst formation (Dvalin East). A second gas-bearing reservoir with a thickness of 140 meters was discovered in 2012 with a second exploration well (Dvalin West).

Thomas Rappuhn, CEO of DEA Deutsche Erdoel AG said: “The Dvalin development will contribute significantly to DEA’s ambition to further grow our business in Norway.”

Dvalin will be developed with a four wells subsea template, which is connected to the Heidrun platform. At Heidrun, the gas will be partly processed in a new module, before the gas is transported in a new export pipeline to Polarled, going to the Nyhamna onshore gas terminal. At Nyhamna, the gas will be processed and transported to the European market.

DEA Norge is operator of license PL435 with a 40% share. Partners are Edison (20%), Maersk (20%) and OMV (20%). However, it is worth noting that OMV has recently agreed to sell its stake to Petoro.
