VIDEO: Wintershall installs subsea templates on Maria field


German oil and gas producer Wintershall completed the installation of subsea templates for the Maria field, offshore Norway, last week.  

The subsea templates travelled 210 km from Kristiansund, Norway to the field location in the Norwegian Sea and were installed at 300 meters water depth.

Wintershall, the operator of the field with 50% interest, submitted a plan for development and operation of the Maria field in May last year. Wintershall’s partners are Petoro, with 30% interest, and Centrica Resources, with the remaining 20% interest. The development plan was approved in September 2015.

The field solution for Wintershall’s flagship development in Norway involves connecting the two seabed installations to three existing platforms in the Norwegian Sea, the Kristin, Heidrun and Åsgard B production platforms.

The investment for the field located on Halten Terrace in blocks 6407/1 and 6406/3 is estimated at around 15.3 billion NOK, including development drilling.

Recoverable reserves on the field are estimated around 180 million barrels of oil equivalent (boe), of which the majority is oil. The planned production startup for Maria is end 2018, and the estimated production period is 23 years.

Wintershall recently awarded a series of four-year contracts for supply of well completion equipment and services for the Maria development, and for other operations on the Norwegian Continental Shelf, to six companies including Halliburton which will provide the largest share of the work.
