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.

Intensifying recession fears spurred by downbeat economic data in Europe and China dragged the crude oil prices lower on Thursday. China’s warning about potential countermeasures in response to the latest U.S. tariff on Chinese goods also weighed on the market. Moreover, the rise in the U.S. crude inventories, extended unexpectedly into the second week, added pressure on crude prices. Under such circumstances, Brent crude dropped by 2.1% to $58.23 a barrel, while WTI futures lost 1.4% to trade at $54.47 a barrel.
