Development concept for Skarfjell selectedWintershall, as operator, and its PL418 license partners have selected a preferred concept for the development of the Skarfjell field in the Norwegian North Sea.

Wintershall, as operator, and its PL418 license partners have selected a preferred concept for the development of the Skarfjell field in the Norwegian North Sea. Under the proposed solution, the reservoir would be connected via a subsea template to the nearby Gjøa platform.

Skarfjell is situated in the northeastern North Sea approximately 20 kilometers southwest of the Engie-operated Gjøa platform and about 130 kilometers northwest of Bergen. Based on the proposed plan, hydrocarbons from the Skarfjell reservoir would be sent from a subsea template to the Gjøa platform for processing and export. Gjøa would also provide gas lift services to the field and water injection for pressure support to a second template.

The majority of the Skarfjell discovery is located in license PL 418, with a possible extension into PL 378. In PL 418 Wintershall Norge AS (operator) has 35 percent, Capricorn Norge AS (part of Cairn Energy PLC) 20 percent, Bayerngas Norge AS 20 percent, Edison Norge AS 15 percent and DEA Norge AS 10 percent.

In PL 378 Wintershall Norge AS (operator) has 62.5 percent, Capricorn Norge AS (part of Cairn Energy PLC) 20 percent and Repsol Norge AS 17.5 percent.

The partnership will submit the concept select report (BOV - Decision to continue) to the authorities by February 16.
