Lundin Energy draws first oil from Rolvsnes field in North Sea

13 Aug 2021

Lundin Energy has extracted first oil from the Rolvsnes field located in the Utsira High region of the Norwegian North Sea, through an extended well test (EWT).

Rolvsnes is the first subsea tie-back development for the Lundin Energy-operated Edvard Grieg platform.

The purpose of the EWT is to gain a better understanding of the reservoir characteristics, its connectivity, and long-term production performance of the field.

If successful, the EWT is expected to result in potentially unlocking full development for the Rolvsnes field, further prolonging the plateau production period for Edvard Grieg.

The Rolvsnes field is estimated to hold 14-78m barrels of oil equivalent (MMboe) gross. It is located in the PL338C block, 3km south of the Edvard Grieg field.

Lundin Energy is the operator of PL338C with a stake of 80% held through its fully-owned subsidiary Lundin Energy Norway. Its partner in the block is OMV (Norge), which holds the remaining 20% stake.
