Swedish oil company Lundin Petroleum marked two years of production from the Edvard Grieg field offshore Norway on Tuesday, November 28.
Edvard Grieg, located in the North Sea some 180 kilometers west of Stavanger, started production on November 28, 2015.
The field was discovered in 2007 with Lundin Norway’s very first drilled exploration well and is estimated to contain 195 million barrels of oil equivalents (gross 2P reserves).
The field has been developed with a steel jacket platform resting on the seabed. The topsides weigh about 22,500 tonnes and include a processing facility, utility module, and living quarters.
Main contracts for the construction of Edvard Grieg were performed by the Norwegian companies with Kværner as the primary contractor. Detailed engineering was done by Aker Solutions, the living quarters and helicopter deck were delivered by Apply Leirvik, while construction of the jacket was done at Kværner Verdal.
The platform deck was constructed at Kværner Stord and with Aker Solutions in Egersund while Saipem executed marine operations.
The field lies in PL338 where Lundin is the operator with a 65 percent working interest. License partners are OMV Norge with 20 percent and Wintershall Norge with the remaining 15 percent interest.
