Recommends electric boiler on the Edvard Grieg platform
Lundin Norway’s recommendation to the other licensees in the Edvard Grieg field is to cover all heat and power needed to operate the platform by electricity from shore when the area-wide solution for power from shore for fields on the Utsira High in the North Sea is in place by 2022.
Through the downturn in the industry, Lundin Norway has continued to invest in its employee base. More than 30 percent of the current workforce has in fact been recruited in the period after oil prices started to fall in 2014. This has been made possible by our long-term strategy to secure sustainable growth.
Rosenberg WorleyParsons to handle modification work on the Edvard Grieg platform
Lundin Norway and its licence partners in PL338 are awarding Stavanger based Rosenberg WorleyParsons contract for modification work on the Edvard Grieg platform in the North Sea. The contract will give important ripple effects locally and regionally, and provide work for 150 people.
Successful appraisal well and extended production test on Alta
Lundin Norway, operator of production licence 609, and its partners have just completed a successful appraisal well and production test on the Alta discovery on the Loppa High in the southern Barents Sea.
The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) presented the 2018 Resource Report this week. It shows that there still are plenty of resources to explore for on the Norwegian shelf. And the exploration is profitable.
Lundin's production set to double with Johan Sverdrup
Lundin Norway will double current production levels thanks to the Johan Sverdrup development. “This field alone will lay the foundation for our strong production growth for the coming years,” says Managing Director Kristin Færøvik.
Testing a new reservoir type in the southern Barents Sea
Lundin Norway has started drilling operations for an extended well test on the Alta discovery in the southern Barents Sea - testing a completely new type of oil reservoir on the Norwegian shelf, consisting of karstified carbonates. A successful outcome will provide important information to progress field development planning and could significantly increase the resource potential in the Barents Sea.
Rocks formed from desert dunes could become some of the best oil reservoirs. Edvard Grieg is the only field on the Norwegian shelf where large parts of the reservoir consist of this type of sandstone. Now we have discovered even more of this type of reservoir in Luno II.
Part 2 - New reservoir types on the Norwegian shelf
About half of the world's oil and gas reserves are estimated to be found in fractured carbonate rocks. Carbonates can also be chemically dissolved, what is called karstified carbonate. For the first time ever on the Norwegian shelf, Lundin Norway will produce oil and gas from karstified carbonates this summer.
