The Norwegian operator’s North Sea fast-track development projects – Fram H-North and Svalin C – have started production.
The fields are the eighth and ninth fast-track developments for the firm.
Statoil leveraged a combination of subsea development solutions and utilisation of infrastructure in a bid to boost oil and gas production.
Fram H-North sits in the Troll area and the Svalin C is located in the Grane area of the North Sea.
Together the pair are thought to hold 40 million barrels of oil equivalents.
Statoil’s head of field development on the Norwegian shelf, Ivar Aasheim, said: “Together with partners, authorities and suppliers we have been able to develop standardised technical solutions and methods of interaction that yield increased production from the Norwegian shelf.”
Anders Opedal, senior vice president for projects in Statoil, added: “We are on the right track with our mindset regarding standardised technical solutions, early maturing of design basis to avoid late changes and last, but not least, use of the same teams from project to project, where people know each other well and share the same philosophy.”
Fram H-North consists of a standard subsea template that can accommodate four wells. It’s connected to five kilometres of pipeline and umbilicals to the existing subsea template on Fram West A2.
Svalin C consists of a subsea facility with two wells, about six kilometres southwest of the Grane platform.
