Production start on Hyme

26. February 2013

On 25 February, Statoil which is the operator of Hyme announced that production began from the oil field located in the southern part of the Norwegian Sea.

The Hyme field was discovered at Haltenbanken in June 2009, 19 kilometres north-east of the Njord A platform. It is tied in to existing infrastructure on Njord A. The field development plan includes a multilateral production well and a water injection well drilled through a subsea template with four well slots. The installation of five new risers and Njord A modifications to receive Hyme production are also part of the project. The investments total some NOK 4.5 billion.
