More information:

Formerly known as Gygrid, the Hyme field was discovered in June 2009 and is located in PL348 between the Draugen and Njord fields, 20 kilometres northeast of the Njord platform. The water depth at the Hyme field is 250 metres.

The field was put on fast track development in February 2010, with the concept being finalised later in the year. Statoil submitted the PDO to the MPE in May 2011, and the plan was approved only six weeks later as part of the Ministry’s initiative to expedite the approval process to encourage the development of small fields.

The Hyme field has been developed with a four slot subsea template tied back to the Njord A platform, with a dual lateral production well and a water injection well. Njord A is a floating steel platform with available processing capacity for the Hyme field.

Production from Hyme commenced in February 2013. The development came ahead of schedule and the cost came in around the operator’s budget of NOK 4.5 billion. The operator upgraded the 2P reserves from 24 mmboe to 30 mmboe after the production well was drilled. The field has a plateau production capacity of approximately 3 500 boepd net to Core Energy.
