Field Location

Field Location
100 km North of
Snohvit field

150 km North of Goliat


240 km to Melkoya
Island, Hammerfest

Skrugard Sk d and dH Havis i i is

7km away from each other

Field terrain
Steeply sloping with
narrow rotated fault block narrow,

Thick sandstone formation Double D bl flat fl t spot t at t both b th

fields; possibly oil-water, gas-water, or gas-oil

Rock formation; middle

Jurassic - late Triassic

Skrugard field
Discovered in April 2011 Discovery well bore 7220/8-1 Water depth 388 m Hydrocarbon approximately
1740 m below sea level

Reserve volume estimate, 400600 million illi barrels b l of f oil il (Johan Castberg)

Havis field Discovered in January 2012 Discovery well bore 7220/7-1 Water W t depth d th 365 m Hydrocarbon approximately
2200 m below sea level

Current progress
Production license, PL 532 Operators: Statoil(50%), ENI(30%), and Petoro(20%) Pipeline export ashore by Petoro and drilling operates by

Norway and Russia has signed an agreement on gray


Environmental challenges
Water depth >100m considered deep water in Arctic region Severe weather environment

Logistic (labor and material) Expensive supply p pp y chain Short window for construction period

gy system y p p , difficult to clean Ecology protection from oil spill, oil + ice

Technology challenges
Marine operation in ice
condition; ice capable vessel

Subsea pipeline installation,

avoid ice-gouging

Iceberg management/monitoring Exploration drilling

Station keeping Oil spill Disconnection and reconnection within short window

Technology challenges
Development drilling

Mooring capacity

Hydrocarbon export challenges

Reliability, repair and maintenance in dynamic ice will be difficult and costly Icebreaking tanker

Oil & Gas exploration in Barents Sea First exploration well drilled in 1980 Over 100 wells were drilled

Snohvit Goliat Johan g Castberg

Undiscovered resources
Proven oil and gas:
350 billion m3 of gas and 210 million m3 of liquid

Undiscovered: 960
million m3 of oil equivalents

Current status in Barent Seas

Snohvit S h it field; fi ld 19
production wells and one co2 well

Goliat developing

Well exploration completed Production well plan to start late 2014 Use water injection for production Export via Snohvit pipeline to Melkoya Island

Current Status around Johan Castberg

Gas discoveries in
Nunatak and Iskrystall y

Skaval on progress,
appraisal drilling

Kramsno next field Drivis plan to drill in

Field development plan

Phase I

Construction of production facility C Construction i of f oil il terminal, i l Finnmark Fi k Pipe laying , trenching to avoid ice gouging Field expansion, tie in subsea installation between Skrugard and Havis Preparation for further field expansion, 4 new discovered field near Johan Castberg

Phase se II Phase III

Area of interest Design & Analysis Analysis of ice induced mooring forces on Floater Floater response due to disconnectable mooring system

Ice influence on the Floater dynamic behavior, depends on:

Ice thickness Relative speed (with reference to the Floater)

A cable-moored Floater subjected to a moving ice flow or ice

fi ld rubble, bbl it will ill cause: field

undesirable ice load undesirable motions
