The partnership submitted an updated plan for development and operations (PDO) to the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy. This next phase of the Maria project is expected to add about 22 MMboe to the total field reserves. Expected lifetime of the Maria Field is 2040.
The Maria Phase 2 project involves installation of a new six-slot template in the southern part of the field. The template will accommodate two producing wells and one water injector for pressure support. The three spare slots will be available for future development of the field.
The Maria Field is located on Haltenbanken in the Norwegian Sea, about 25 km east of the Kristin Field. Maria was discovered in 2010, the PDO approved in 2015, and production started in 2017.
The field is developed as a subsea tieback with two templates. There are five producers and two water injectors on the field. Gas for gas lift is supplied from the Åsgard B facility via Tyrihans. Water injection is supplied from Heidrun.
