The development of Tune Sør is part of StatoilHydro’s business plan for resource exploitation and infrastructure use in the Oseberg/Tune area.
Tune Sør is a continuation of the Tune Nord project which was stopped after the field proved to be dry.
The Tune Sør satellite well will produce for and be controlled from Oseberg D (see illustration).
Modification of the processing facility at Oseberg D to include production from Tune Sør is of limited scope.
Production start-up from Tune Sør will be in July 2009, dependent on progress in drilling, completion and testing.
Drilling of gas and condensate producing well A-21 AH was planned for completion in May 2009.
