Development turning discoveries into production
Wintershall Dea has extensive experience in constructing offshore fields and turning discoveries into production. As a centre of excellence in the operation of subsea development and production, Wintershall Dea is building two more fields – Nova and Dvalin – that will use existing infrastructure and offshore platforms to sustainably produce hydrocarbons on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. As an engaged, reliable partner, Wintershall Dea also invests in joint ventures and uses its experience as a developer to help build fields operated by our partners.
The Aker BP development is a two-phased tieback to the Skarv FPSO, beginning with a three-well tieback to the Skarv A template. Phase two, beginning in 2023, will add three more wells. The Ærfugl development will extend the economic field life of the Skarv FPSO and allow for increased recovery from the Skarv field itself.
Askeladd is a subsea LNG development which will increase plateau production at the onshore Melkøya processing plant in Hammerfest. Askeladd is part of the development plan for the Snøhvit feld, and comprises Askeladd Nord, Gamma and Vest, which will export to shore using two subsea templates tied back via the existing Snøhvit subsea facilities. Equinor is the operator.
P1 is a tieback to the Gjøa field in the North Sea. The discovery is within the Gjøa license, and is being developed as a field extension focusing on increased exploitation of the license's potential. Neptune Energy is the operator.
The Snorre expansion project will add extra barrels to the Equinor-operated field, and extend its lifetime via a subsea tieback to Snorre A. With 24 new wells planned with six new subsea templates, the expansion is a major field development that will add around 190 million boe to reserves and could extend the field's lifetime for another 25 years.
Solveig (formerly Luno II) is a tieback to the Edvard Grieg platform in the North Sea and is being developed with five stand-alone satellite structures, comprising three oil producers and two water injectors. Lundin is the operator of the field. Solveig is located some 15 km south of Edvard Grieg and has estimated resources of 57 million boe.
