ConocoPhillips to Use Ekofisk Subsea Facility for Water Injection

ConocoPhillips Skandinavia AS (ConocoPhillips) has received consent to use the Ekofisk 2/4-VB subsea facility for water injection on the Ekofisk field.

ConocoPhillips has received consent to use the Ekofisk 2/4-VB subsea facility. The facility will inject water into the reservoir to stimulate oil production from the Ekofisk field. Water injection on the Ekofisk field started in 1987 and has made considerable contributions to improved recovery from the field.

The Ekofisk 2/4-VB subsea facility is included in a plan for further use of water injection to increase the recovery rate. It consists of a subsea template with eight water injection wells. It is connected to an existing pipeline between Ekofisk 2/4 K and Eldfisk 2/4 E with a new 5-km long pipeline. The facility will be remote-controlled from the 2/4 K facility.

The subsea facility is located approx. 3 km south of the Ekofisk Field Centre.

The plan is to start using the facility at the end of the fourth quarter of 2012, or early in 2013.
