Wintershall Dea reported today that it has begun drilling 4 production wells on the Dvalin gas field in the Norwegian Sea, getting ready for the start of production in 2020.

Drilling of the production wells from the Transocean Arctic rig is expected to last approximately one year and follows an intense summer of activity around the Wintershall Dea operated Dvalin development.

 

Since April there has been high activity at the Dvalin field with installation of pipelines and the manifold at 400 m water depth.

 

In August, a 3,500 t processing module was completed and lifted on to the nearby Heidrun platform in preparation for receiving gas from the Dvalin field.

 

Dvalin is being developed as a subsea field tied back to Heidrun, which lies some 15 km to the northwest. 4 wells will be drilled to a depth of around 4,500 m.

Daily (17.10.2019): NBP spot slumped by over 8% on Wednesday amid firmer Norwegian exports and lower gas-for-power demand

Speculations about a potential extension of crude supply cuts by OPEC and its allies as of December led to a recovery in crude oil prices on Wednesday. The greenback’s slide coupled with short covering in anticipation of an industry report on U.S. crude inventories also contributed to the market rally. Still, concerns over tighter crude demand and expectations for higher crude stocks in the U.S. limited gains. Against that backdrop, Brent crude rose by 1.2% to 59.42 USD/bbl, while WTI futures advanced by 1% to 53.36 USD/bbl.
