This development comprises a subsea template with four well slots and the drilling of four wells for water injection. This will contribute to an increase in oil production of around 2.7 million standard cubic metres of oil – corresponding to 17 million barrels. The manifold and HOST structures were fabriacted at ASF’s yard, and ASF is proud of the trust that once again has been put into our fabrication capabilities.
The development of 2/4 VC was approved by the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy on 7 September 2017, as an amended Plan for Development and Operation (amended PDO) for Ekofisk south. The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate reports that current resource and cost estimates are in line with what was presumed when the amended PDO was approved and that total investments in the Ekofisk 2/4 VC development are calculated at approx. NOK 2.3 billion.
