Heidrun is a producing conventional oil field located in deepwater in Norway and is operated by Equinor Energy. The field is located in block 6507/7P (PL 095) and 6507/8P (PL 124), with water depth of 1,197 feet.
An expansion project is associated with the Heidrun, namely Heidrun Subsea Extention Phase 2. This project is currently in the feed stage.
Production from Heidrun
The Heidrun conventional oil field recovered 87.94% of its total recoverable reserves, with peak production in 1997. The peak production was approximately 231.73 thousand bpd of crude oil and condensate and 32 Mmcfd of natural gas. Based on economic assumptions, production will continue until the field reaches its economic limit in 2033. The field currently accounts for approximately 2% of the country’s daily output.
Remaining recoverable reserves
The field is expected to recover 167.3 Mmboe, comprised of 126.67 Mmbbl of crude oil & condensate, 199.55 bcf of natural gas reserves and 7.38 Mmbbl of natural gas liquid reserves. Heidrun conventional oil field reserves accounts 0.04% of total remaining reserves of producing conventional oil fields globally.
