Poland´s PGNiG launches production from a new field in the Norwegian Sea

 Poland´s PGNiG launches production from a new field in the Norwegian Sea

Warsaw, June 21 - Neftegaz.RU. PGNiG Upstream Norway, together with Aker BP as the operator and other licence partners, commenced production from the Gråsel field.

Paweł Majewski, President of PGNiG, said:
  • The Gråsel project proves that even relatively small fields can be valuable assets, providing a very attractive return on investment and a reduced carbon footprint
  • The location of Gråsel in an area where there is already a well-developed infrastructure not only reduced the cost of developing the field, but also shortened the development time.
  • Production from the field was launched only 6 months after the final investment decision and 4 months before the originally planned deadline
Gråsel is an oil and gas field with resources of 13 million barrels of oil equivalent (boe).
It is located in the Skarv production area, which has been in production since 2013.

This has enabled Gråsel to be connected to the already operating production facilities, a key component of which is the FPSO Skarv production and storage unit - one of the largest of its kind in the world.

The ability to use the completed infrastructure significantly improves the profitability of new upstream projects in the region.
In addition to Gråsel, FPSO Skarv is used for the Ærfugl gas field, where 5 wells are in operation and 2 more will be commissioned later this year.

It is also planned to use FPSO Skarv to off-take hydrocarbons from other fields owned by PGNiG: Shrek and Alve Nord.
At the turn of May and June 2021, the unit underwent a major planned turnaround to enable it to receive additional gas volumes from new projects located in the Skarv area.

PGNiG Upstream Norway holds an 11.92% interest in the Gråsel field.
The licence partners are Aker BP (operator), Equinor and Wintershall DEA.
