Offshore watchdog looks into Neptune’s Fenja project

Norwegian offshore safety watchdog, the Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA), has found an improvement point during an audit of production pipes for Neptune’s Fenja field off Norway.

The offshore safety body said on Thursday that the audit was conducted on October 8, 2018.

According to the PSA, it is planned to develop the Fenja field using flowlines employing new technology in the form of electrically trace heated (ETH) pipe-in-pipe.

The objective of the audit was to monitor that qualification, production, and testing of flowlines for Fenja were carried out in accordance with established requirements and standards.

Part of the task was also to audit how the operator was exercising its supervisory duty with regard to the supplier TechnipFMC.

The PSA said that there were no non-conformities found during the audit while the safety watchdog identified one improvement point relating to the lack of documentation of the choice of the recognized standard within the electrical facilities.

Neptune was told to report on how the improvement point would be addressed by December 18, 2018.

Fenja

Fenja is located in the Norwegian Sea some 35 kilometers southwest of the Njord field. Water depth in the area is 325 meters. The field was proven in 2014, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in April 2018.

The development solution consists of two subsea templates with a total of six wells tied back to the Njord A facility. Production is expected to begin in late 2021.

The field contains recoverable resources of approximately 100 million barrels oil equivalents, mostly oil (11.0 million standard cubic meters of oil, 3.4 billion standard cubic meters of gas and 0.57 million tonnes of NGL).

It is worth noting that Neptune Energy became the Fenja operator following the purchase of VNG’s Norwegian subsidiary VNG Norge. The deal was announced on June 28 and completed on Friday, September 28.
