Production and develpment

Repsol produces about 30,000 barrels of oil equivalents per day from fields in the Norwegian shelf. It is operator for the Gyda, Blane, Yme and Rev fields and has ownership interests in several others.

In Norway, Repsol operates the Blane, Gyda, Rev and Yme fields. We also hold interests in a number of non-operated fields with associated production facilities and intrafield pipelines including Gudrun, Brage, Veslefrikk, Visund, Mikkel, Huldra and Tambar East.

Yme

Yme

Yme is a brownfield development, involving both the re-use of existing facilities and infrastructure and design and construction of new facilities. Repsol achieved first oil in October 2021 on the Yme field in the Egersund Basin, approximately 130 km from the Norwegian coastline. Yme is one of the 14 key upstream projects that Repsol is focusing on within the framework of the company’s 2021–2025 Strategic Plan.
Gyda

Gyda

The Gyda field was proven in 1980 and developed by the use of an integrated steel platform at a depth of 66 meters. The oil was transported by pipeline to Teesside via Ekofisk. The gas was piped to the Ekofisk complex and on to Emden.

In June 2017 the Norwegian authorities approved the decommission plan for the Gyda field. The decommission scope includes permanent plugging of 32 wells on the field, removal of platform and undercarriage, as well as removal of installations on the seabed. All Gyda installations should be removed by 2023.

Blane

Blane

Blane is developed with a subsea facility, which is tied back to the Ula field. The subsea installation is situated on the British Continental Shelf. The ocean depth at the site is around 70 meters.

Rev

Rev

Rev was discovered in February 2001 and commenced production in January 2009. The three wells are situated on the NCS, 84 m water depth, and a buried production pipeline carries the gas and condensate to the Armada platform on the UKCS for processing. Rev currently produces periodically with about 8-10 cycles each year.

Brage

Brage

Brage is developed with a platform resting on the seabed, encompassing drilling, treatment and accommodation facilities on a steel jacket. The area’s ocean depth is 140 meters. Originally, the Brage field was supposed to be shut down in 2005. The fields license periode expires in 2015. A license extension to 2030 is now under consideration by the authorities. 1 October 2013, Wintershall took over Equinorl's share in the field and become the operator.

Gudrun

Gudrun

Gudrun is developed with a traditional steel platform resting on the seabed. The platform have capacity for partial treatment of oil and gas, before the hydrocarbons are sent via pipeline to Sleipner.

Oil and gas is transported from the Gudrun field to the Sleipner A platform. The gas is transported onward to the gas markets from Sleipner A. The oil is routed together with the Sleipner condensate to Kårstø for shipping.

Gudrun was first proven in 1975.

Visund

Visund

Visund is an oil and gas field in blocks 34/8 and 34/7, 22 kilometres north-east of the Gullfaks field in the Tampen area of the Norwegian North Sea.

It came on stream in the spring of 1999, this development embraces a floating production, drilling and quarters platform.

The subsea-completed wells on the field are tied back to the floater with flexible risers. Oil is piped to Gullfaks for storage and export. The Visund field began producing gas and exporting it to continental Europe on 7 October 2005.

Veslefrikk

Veslefrikk

The Veslefrikk field was proven in 1981 and has been developed with a well-head platform (Veslefrikk A) resting on the seabed, and a semi-subersible platform with a processing facility and accomodation quarters (Veslefrikk B). The ocean depths at the installations are 175 meters.

Operator:

  • Equinor Petroleum AS

Mikkel

Mikkel

Mikkel lies 35 kilometres south of the Midgard deposit on Equinor’s Åsgard field in the Norwegian Sea. It has been developed with a subsea production facility tied back to the seabed installations on Midgard, which in turn form part of the Åsgard development.

The Mikkel system comprises two subsea templates with a total of three production wells.

The condensate will go in existing flowlines to the Åsgard C storage ship for export, while gas is piped through the Åsgard Transport trunkline to the Kårstø complex north of Stavanger.

Mikkel has been producing gas and condensate (light oil) since 1 August 2003.
