Gina Krog

The Gina Krog oil & gas field is located in blocks 15/5 & 15/6 of production licenses PL 303, 048, 029 and 029B in the North Sea, Norway. Gina Krog is located some 30km away from the Sleipner platform in approximately 110m water depth. The field is currently in development, with approximately $5bn being invested, and first production is scheduled for early 2017.

The Gina Krog reservoir is of the Middle Jurassic Hugin formation located at a depth of 3,700m. The Gina Krog field is structurally complex and is steep on the flanks, making it a technically difficult development. The gross recoverable reserves, according to the NPD, are estimated at 225 million barrels of oil equivalent. It is planned to drain the field with a mixture of producers and gas injectors, with a total of 14 wells envisaged in the initial drilling campaign.

Gina Krog will be developed via a new, standalone, 20 well, 70 bed jacket platform, which has a designed production capacity of 10,000 Sm3/d of oil and 9,000,000 Sm3/d of gas. Stabilised oil will be stored in an FSO and shipped to refineries by shuttle tankers. Rich gas will be processed at the Sleipner A platform, and sales gas will be sent to the UK and EU markets via Gassled. Condensate will be routed via the Sleipner R platform, and then processed at Kårstø into NGL products.

The development concept also allows for additional well slots & topsides capacity for several unproven segments and exploration targets nearby. PGNiG envisages that Gina Krog will become a key “hub” development for the area.
