AGR said on Monday that it would apply its in-house expertise to build the model, from its elements up to a history-matched dynamic model, which would be used to forecast the assets’ production volumes for the coming years.

Håvard Morset, Draugen subsurface manager at OKEA, said: “AGR is a highly competent reservoir consultancy that has consistently demonstrated its ability to deliver similar large-scale projects. We’re pleased to partner with them on this latest development and look forward to working together to provide a first-class reservoir model for the Draugen asset.”

According to the company, the AGR project team will cover skills of geophysicists, petrophysicist, sedimentologist, geomodellers, reservoir engineers, and a production engineer.

Anna-Lena Hellman, the manager of reservoir geology at AGR will be the project manager on behalf of the company while Harmonie Wiesenberg, the lead geologist at OKEA, will coordinate the project from OKEA side.

The Draugen field is located in the southern part of the Norwegian Sea and it is operated by OKEA, which took over Shell’s entire 44.56% interest in the field back in November 2018. OKEA’s partners in the field are Petoro and Neptune Energy with a 47.9% and 7.56% interest, respectively.

The water depth in the area is 250 meters. The field has been developed with a concrete fixed facility and integrated topside and has both platform and subsea wells. Stabilized oil is stored in tanks at the base of the facility. Two pipelines connect the facility to a floating loading-buoy. Production started in 1993.
