Statoil gains nod to tweak Heidrun for Dvalin gas
Norwegian oil company Statoil has received consent from the Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) to modify the Heidrun tension leg platform off Norway to be able to receive gas from DEA Norge’s Dvalin development.
Statoil has now received consent to modify parts of the production plant at the Heidrun TLP platform to allow gas to be received from the DEA Norge-operated Dvalin field, which is around 15 kilometers north-west of Heidrun.
The operator’s plan for Development and Operation of the Dvalin development was approved by the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy in March 2017.
The field will be developed with a four wells subsea template, which is connected to the Heidrun platform. At Heidrun, the gas will be partly processed in a new module before it is transported in a new export pipeline to Polarled, going to the Nyhamna onshore gas terminal. At Nyhamna, the gas will be processed and transported to the European market.
Production from the field is scheduled to begin in 2020.
