Statoil: Troll Field Production Reaches 1.5 Billion Barrels

first_imgDuring the last five years Statoil and its partners have invested as much as $7.84 billion on the Troll field, which came on stream in 1995. The investment level will remain high for many years to come.The Troll B platform in the North Sea.Troll is the story of achieving the impossible. The oil proven in connection with the largest gas discovery ever made in the North Sea was considered non-recoverable. Field production so far totals 1.5 billion barrels of oil.“The work we have done on Troll illustrates how Statoil operates to manage the offshore resources properly and safely to ensure value creation for the owners and the Norwegian society at large,” says Kjetil Hove, senior vice president for operations North Sea east in Development and Production Norway.At this year’s Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston he used Troll as an example of how Statoil’s activities on the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS), including technology development and expertise build-up, has turned Statoil into the world’s largest offshore operator.“An innovative approach to challenges has helped develop new technology, high expertise, concepts and solutions that extend the field life and enhance value creation, which in turn have led to spinoffs far beyond our area of activity,” says Hove.In addition to producing oil from the Troll B and C platforms, the field is today the cornerstone of Norwegian gas production, and one of the most central fields delivering gas to the European market.The field contains around 40% of total gas reserves on the NCS.The Troll C platformLargest oil producer on the NCSCorresponding to half the size of Mexico City, Troll is today among the largest NCS oil fields.When the discovery was made, however, it was considered impossible to commercialise the oil due to tilted layers and a very thin oil zone in the reservoir.To be able to recover oil from the thin layers Statoil has, in collaboration with the suppliers, developed advanced technology that enables drilling of horizontal multilateral wells.The Troll wells are drilled down to a reservoir located around 1,320 metres below the seabed, where they are split into two to four branches.Each branch extends around 3,000-4,000 metres horizontally into the reservoir. A total of more than one million metres have been drilled in the reservoir from 180 production wells.Technology to optimise production from the horizontal branches has also been developed to achieve higher total production per well.“In May we will reach the milestone of 1.5 billion barrels of oil produced since the startup in 1995. We are very pleased as we are able to realise both oil and gas values of this vital field,” says Hove. He praises the active partners who challenge and provide knowledge and expertise.Our ambition is to produce 2,1 billion barrels. In 2013 the field produced 124,000 barrels of oil per day. Even after almost 19 years of operation there are currently four drilling rigs in operation on the field, and this activity will continue until 2020.Up to 250 horizontal production wells will be drilled in this period. The field is operated by Statoil, with Petoro, Shell, Total and ConocoPhillips as licence partners.Video of Kjetil Hove talking about Troll Field:Press Release, May 08, 2014last_img read more

Johnson felt a sense of responsibility after the senior defensive tackle missed Kentucky’s season opener because of an undisclosed violation of team rules and then produced just one tackle in his Week 2 return.“I owed the team something, but it was mostly I owed myself, because I let myself down,” he said. “I was doing a lot of proving to myself.”Johnson delivered last week against Florida, producing the game of his college career: six tackles, a sack and a blocked field goal. The Gators gained no more than a yard on four of his stops. The 6-foot-3, 300-pound former junior college transfer, who came to the Wildcats as a four-star recruit two years ago, had just 10 tackles in 2014.“That was the most I ever played here, so of course it was my best game,” Johnson said. “It was pretty fun to actually do what you’ve been working on.”Until that breakout game against Florida – facilitated by an injury to starter Regie Meant – he’d been primarily a third-down specialist for UK, unusually quick for his size and thus a dangerous pass rusher. But defensive line coach Jimmy Brumbaugh said Johnson is one of the strongest players on the team and plenty capable of hunkering down against the run.So why hadn’t he played more for the Cats?“Probably because I paid little attention to detail,” he admits. “I didn’t take certain things as serious. I didn’t take learning the plays as serious. So I was just coming in thinking it was already going to be given to me instead of trying to work for it.”Since coming to the realization and doing something about it, Johnson has turned himself in to a player the coaching staff can trust, even if Meant’s shoulder injury lingers. (The 6-foot-4, 302-pound sophomore is questionable for Saturday’s game against Missouri, but Brumbaugh thinks he’ll play.)Johnson is “a very explosive guy,” his position coach said. “He’s a guy that we have confidence in now that he can get out there and handle the load of playing (outside or inside, against run or pass). What’s really helped him is the ability to learn the scheme this year. Now that he’s been stepping up, he really embraces it.“He’s bought into the technique aspect of it and … he’s just playing with more confidence.”Kyle Tucker can be reached at (502) 582-4361.
