The project consists of a comprehensive subsea development, upgrading of the Snorre A installation, increased gas injection and gas import for injection. According to the development plan, 24 new wells will be drilled through 6 new templates installed in the summer of 2019.
In the beginning, the Snorre Field was estimated to produce until 2011-2014. Yet, as the project got expanded the field's life will be beyond 2040. It will increase the production from the Snorre field by 200 million barrels of oil and the recovery rate from 46 to 51%.
Agility began its share of the work on the Snorre project in May 2018 by cutting the first steel at its Tønsberg site.
Concluding, Equinor aims to start production from the Snorre Expansion Project in 2021. The project will be operated and maintained by the existing Snorre organization in Stavanger and supplies will be handled by Fjordbase in Florø.
