Det norske backs out of Jette North development

Det_norske_backs_out_of_Jette_North_development_Det norske, an oil exploration and development company focused on the Norwegian Continental Shelf, has decided to abandon the development of the northern part of the Jette field, in the North Sea, offshore Norway. 

In an e-mail sent to Offshore Energy Today, Det norske confirmed it had received an approval from the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy (MPE) to deviate from the plan for development and operation (PDO) of a production well in the northern area of the field.

Namely, the company asked for permission to deviate from the plan in December 2014, and the request was approved by the MPE on July 2, 2015.

According to Det norske, the Jette PDO approval on February 17, 2012, was based on a drainage strategy covering both the southern and northern part of the Jette field. The production from Jette field started on May 19, 2013, and it was the first oil produced by Det norske as operator.

The field has been developed with a subsea installation tied back to the Jotun B platform. The Jotun installations consist of a floating production facility with storage and offloading facilities (Jotun A), and a wellhead platform (Jotun B).

However, Det norske explained that, based on an improved reservoir risk understanding from two producers in the Southern part of the field and a re-assessment of the northern part, the Jette partnership recommended not to drill the Jette North well.

Det norske is the operator with 70% interest, while Petoro holds the remaining interest in the field.
