Statoil to disconnect loading buoy from Heidrun

Statoil Petroleum AS has received consent from the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway to remove a loading buoy from the Heidrun oil export solution.

Heidrun is located at Haltenbanken in the Norwegian Sea. Water depth is around 350 metres. The field has been developed using a concrete floating tension leg platform over a subsea facility with 56 well slots.

The loading buoy removal is scheduled to start during June 2014.

This field in the Norwegian Sea has been producing oil and gas since October 1995 from a floating tension leg platform with a concrete hull.

Heidrun was discovered in 1985 by Conoco, which served as operator for the exploration and development phase.

The north flank of Heidrun was brought on stream in August 2000.

Oil from the field is primarily shipped by shuttle tanker to Statoil’s Mongstad crude oil terminal near Bergen for onward transport to customers.

Gas from Heidrun is piped to Tjeldbergodden in mid-Norway and provides the feedstock for the Statoil’s methanol plant there.

From 2001, the field has also been tied to Åsgard Transport.

Heidrun gas is piped through this trunkline to Kårstø north of Stavanger and on to Dornum in Germany – a total distance of roughly 1400 kilometres.
