The North Sea "fast-track” fields Fram H-North and Svalin C have now started production.
Statoil’s fast-track development projects are increasing the company’s and partners’ oil and gas production through a combination of standardised subsea development solutions and utilisation of infrastructure in a manner which helps extend the lifetime of existing fields.
Production start-up on Fram H-North and Svalin C marks the eighth and ninth fast-track development projects for Statoil.
"Together with partners, authorities and suppliers we have been able to develop standardised technical solutions and methods of interaction that yield increased production from the Norwegian shelf," says Statoil’s head of field development on the Norwegian shelf, Ivar Aasheim.
"We have achieved a lot with regard to costs, development time and HSE. These are good experiences we will benefit from in Statoil’s efforts to increase competitiveness and a long-term sustainable development of the industry. Fram H-North and Svalin C are good, positive representatives of what we want to achieve through the fast-track development concept."
