Approval of major modifications on Huldra

Statoil ASA has secured consent to install a new compressor on Huldra. With the aid of the compressor, the delivery pressure in the gas pipeline to Heimdal will be maintained during declining pressure in the Huldra reservoirs.

Huldre (kilde:Statoil)Huldra is located in the north-eastern part of Viking Graben, about 30 kilometers north of Oseberg.

The field is developed with a normally unmanned wellhead facility (photo) which is remote-controlled from Veslefrikk. Condensate is transported in a pipeline to Veslefrikk B for processing and further transport to the crude oil terminal at Sture.

The gas is transported in a pipeline to Heimdal for processing and export to the Continent or the U.K.
With the present equipment, production will stop in October 2006, due to declining pressure in the reservoir. After installation of compressor, the delivery pressure in the pipeline to Heimdal can be maintained and the production can continue until 2011 - 2012.
