OSLO -- StatoilHydro and its partners have chosen a concept for the Gudrun field development. Plans are now being drawn up for a new platform in the North Sea.
The platform is to be developed as a fixed processing facility with seven production wells which will be tied back to existing facilities in the Sleipner area and the Kårstø processing plant north of Stavanger.
Plans also call for connecting a subsea system on the Sigrun field to the future platform on the Gudrun field.
A final decision on the development is yet to be made and is scheduled for 2009, the company says.
