28/09/2020 The authorities have received a plan for development and operation (PDO) for the Breidablikk oil field in the North Sea. Equinor and its partners are planning start-up in 2024.

Breidablikk (previously called Grand) is located northeast of the Grane field, approx. 185 kilometres west of Haugesund. The total recoverable reserves from Breidablikk are estimated at about 30 million standard cubic metres (Sm3) of oil. This equates to 200 million barrels. 

The field will be developed with four subsea templates, each with six slots. The templates will be tied into the Grane facility. 

The plan calls for 23 production wells on the field. The oil will be processed and exported via Grane to the Sture terminal in Hordaland county.

According to the operator, investments for the Breidablikk development will total around NOK 18,6 billion.  

“This is an important project in terms of improving recovery from the Grane area, and it is also a good utilisation of existing infrastructure,” says Arvid Østhus, the NPD’s assistant director for development and operations – North Sea.  

The Breidablikk field consists of the 25/11-27 discovery (F structure) and the 25/8-4 discovery (D structure). 

The owners are Equinor (operator), Petoro, Vår Energi and ConocoPhilips Skandinavia.
