STAVANGER, Norway — The DUC’s Tyra Redevelopment project in the Danish North Sea continues to make good progress, according to partner BlueNord’s latest results statement.
Earlier this week, the first gas turbine generator started up successfully at Tyra East. There was downtime earlier this year on the main crane on the TEG processing platform, but since mid-March it has been back in normal operation.
Elsewhere in the Danish sector, first-quarter output from the Dan hub was higher than expected following restimulation of seven wells in March.
A further nine wells are due to undergo restimulation this month during the planned shutdown on the Dan F platform, which is connected to re-routing of Halfdan Field oil stabilization to Dan to remove routine flaring on Gorm.
So far this year, the WROM rig has performed five interventions with 21 more planned for the same rig over the remainder of 2023, including the restimulations.
Production has also been higher at the Gorm hub following scale squeeze and restimulations interventions last November and flush production after the annual compressor maintenance shutdown last December. There were compressor issues on Gorm in February, but a repair operation was successful.
The DUC plans restimulation of six Gorm wells this month and into June.
At the Halfdan hub, the Shelf Drilling Winer jackup completed one workover during the first quarter and another is underway. The rig will then start infill drilling on the Halfdan North East Field.
Production has been strong from the Halfdan hub despite an issue with the inlet manifold of the Halfdan B HP separator (since resolved).
Following FID last December on two new infill wells, the Shelf Drilling Winner recently started preparatory slot recovery operations at the Halfdan A platform. BlueNord expects production from the first Halfdan Tor North East well during the third quarter.
