Wintershall secures start-up consent for Dvalin field
23 October, 2020
German gas and oil producer Wintershall Dea has secured consent from the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) for start-up of the approximately NOK11bn (US$1.19bn) Dvalin field in the Norwegian Sea.
Located in blocks 6507/7/9 and 6507/8 in production licence 435, the field is being developed as a subsea tieback to the Heidrun platform.
According to estimates, the field will recover 18bn standard cubic metres of gas. It consists of two structures situated 3.5km apart. It is planned to commence production in November/December 2020.
Wintershall Dea has completed drilling of the four production wells including two for the eastern part and two for the western part of the Dvalin field. Drilling was started in August 2019.
The wellstream from the Dvalin field is planned to be sent to the Heidrun field, located south-east of the Dvalin field, for further processing. The gas will then be exported into Nyhamna in Central Norway via the Polarled pipeline.
