Norway: Tyrihans project approved

The Norwegian Storting (parliament) has approved the plan for development and operation of the Statoil-operated Tyrihans field in the Norwegian Sea. The project embraces two structures – Tyrihans South, an oil field with a gas cap, and Tyrihans North. The latter is a gas and condensate discovery with a thin oil zone. Plans call for the Tyrihans structures to be developed with five seabed templates tied back to the Statoil-operated Kristin platform. A 43km pipeline will carry the wellstream to the Kristin platform. The Tyrihans gas will be sent through the Šsgard Transport system to the treatment complex at Kårstø north of Stavanger. Tyrihans is due to come on stream in 2009, when spare capacity will be available in Kristin’s topside facilities. Total development costs are estimated to be NOK 14.5 billion (nominal). Recoverable reserves are put at roughly 182 million barrels of oil and condensate, and 34.8bcm of rich gas.
