Improved recovery from Gudrun
The Gudrun partners have decided to invest in a water injection plant on the Gudrun field to improve reservoir recovery. This will extend the field life by three years compared to the original plan.
“We are pleased about the partnership’s decision to invest NOK 2.4 billion in further development of the Gudrun field. Water injection will improve recovery from the reservoir and utilize existing infrastructure on the field. This is a robust and good project,” says Tom Elseth, Equinor’s project director for Gudrun.
Production on the Gudrun field is declining, and for that reason we have looked at ways of increasing field production together with our partners.
The water injection project will produce water from the Utsira formation and reinject it into the reservoir for pressure support and increased production. In addition, a new production well will be drilled.
