Fossil energy – development
Draugen operator OKEA ASA and partners Petoro AS and Neptune Energy Norge AS have made the decision to develop the Hasselmus gas discovery.
Hasselmus will be the first tie-back to the Draugen production platform and will add in excess of 4,000 barrels of oil equivalents per day to the production.
The Hasselmus project is expected to recover approximately 1.65 GSm3 (10.6 million barrels of oil equivalents) as fuel and export gas and will also make possible the restart of export of associated gas including NGL which is currently being injected into the reservoir.
The development concept is a single subsea well with direct tie-back to the Draugen platform. Production start-up is planned in Q4 2023 with plateau gas production of more than 4,400 barrels of oil equivalents per day gross.
“The Hasselmus project is the first field development project for OKEA as operator. Based on the single well subsea development solution with tie-back to the Draugen platform it is also a financially robust project,” says Knut Gjertsen, SVP Projects and Technology in OKEA.
