STOCKHOLM, Sweden – Reservoir performance from the Edvard Grieg field in the Norwegian North Sea continues to exceed expectations, according to operator Lundin Norway.

To date there has been limited water production, the company said in its latest results statement, while the total well potential is significantly higher than the available facilities capacity.

The company and its partners have sanctioned a three-well infill drilling program for next year, targeting 18 MMboe, which will lift the field’s proved plus probable reserves to more than 300 MMboe.

Based on the performance at Edvard Grieg and the addition of the Solveig and Rolvsnes tieback projects, Lundin has extended its forecast plateau production period through the Edvard Grieg facilities to around end-2022.

The jackup Rowan Viking, which has handled all development wells on the field, will also undertake the infill program and P&A of the four Brynhild field wells for Lundin.

Aside from these projects the company is participating in three further exploration wells over the remainder of this year: PL820S Evra/Iving prospect; PL896 Wintershall, Toutatis; and PL917 ConocoPhillips, Enniberg.
