Statoil is developing Njord’s northwest flank. This development will increase the total recoverable reserves in the Njord field, secure continued gas exports and extend Njord’s lifetime by up to two years. The flank lies about six kilometers north-west of the Njord platform. The development solution comprises two new extended-reach wells. Drilled directly from the platform with eight kilometers of well paths, the wells will be tied back to the platform.

“This is an example of how we can use existing infrastructure in a prospective area to maximize the potential of the Norwegian continental shelf,” said Ståle Tungesvik, Statoil’s senior vice president for reserve replacement and business development.

The reservoir contains both rich gas and condensate and comprises two structures, A and B. These were discovered in 2007 and 2000 respectively. Since the pressure in Njord’s north-west flank is slightly higher than in the main reservoir, modifications will have to be made on the platform to handle this.
