The Fram Øst development includes two well template structures, each accommodating four wellheads. The plan calls for a total of five oil producers and two water injection wells.
The production line, umbilical and water injection lines will be hooked up to Troll C.
A gas lift pipeline will also be installed, in which the lift gas is taken from the Fram Vest gas injection pipeline. One well on Fram Øst will produce directly via a dedicated pipeline into the Fram Vest production line.
The Fram Øst Plan for Development and Operation (PDO) was approved by the King in Council on 22 April 2005. Planned start-up date for production from Fram Øst is 31 October 2006.
