Aker BP Granted Consent for Start-up of the Skogul Field in North Sea

The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate has granted its consent for start-up of the Skogul field in the North Sea. Consent for start-up of Skogul is given to the licensees in production licence PL 460.

Skogul was proven in 2010 and the Plan for Development and Operation (PDO) was approved in early 2018. Recoverable resources are estimated at 1.5 million standard cubic metres of oil (9.4 million bbls) in the PDO. That makes Skogul one of the smallest fields on the Norwegian shelf.

The field is developed with a seabed template tied in to the Alvheim FPSO via the Vilje field. Operator Aker BP plans start-up in March 2020, in line with the PDO. When the PDO was submitted, development costs were estimated at approx. 1.5 billion kroner.

'Skogul contributes to good resource exploitation in the Alvheim area. The project serves as an example that even small fields can create value for the licensees and the Norwegian society,' says Arvid ?sthus, the NPD’s Assistant director Development and operations - North Sea.

The licensees in the Alvheim field received the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate’s IOR award in 2018 for use of newly developed technology, sharing data and the ability to see and develop a larger area as one overall unit.

An exploration programme near the field has resulted in discoveries and the development of several new discoveries. These have been developed, and discoveries outside the field area have also been tied in to Alvheim. Skogul is an example of this. This has contributed to the reserves in the Alvheim area being more than doubled compared with the description provided in the approved Plan for Development and Operation in 2004.
