Offshore Field Development Projects
Gyda
Operator:Talisman
Water Depth:66 m / 218 ft
Region:Europe - North Sea
Country:Norway
Last Updated:Mar 4, 2013    (view update history)
Project Description
The Gyda field is located in the North Sea Central Trough, offshore Norway, 168 miles Southwest of Stavanger, and 27 miles North of Ekofisk Center, block 2/1 production license 019 B, in 230 feet of water. Production began in June 1990.

The field was developed with a single PDQ platform with 32 drilling slots. Produced oil is transported to Ekofisk.

Gyda consists of three reservoir areas in Upper Jurassic sandstones of the Ula Formation. The reservoir depth is roughly 13,000 feet. The field produces with water injection as the drive mechanism for the main part of the field. Pressure support from the gas cap and the aquifer are drive mechanisms for other parts of the field.

The field produces with water injection as the drive mechanism for the main part of the field. Pressure support from the gas cap and the aquifer are drive mechanisms for other parts of the field.

Gyda is a mature field in tail phase and experiences increasing water production and challenges in maintaining the oil production. Work is ongoing to prolong the lifetime of the field. This includes further infill drilling and plans for installation of artificial lift in some wells. Gas lift has increased well production.

Talisman to Drill Gyda Sor Well with Maersk Guardian Jackup
Type: Status Update

Oct. 2008 - Talisman Energy Norway AS has been granted consent to conduct exploration drilling of well 2/1-13S with the jackup Maersk Guardian. Well 2/1-13S is part of production license 299 and is located on Gyda Sor in the southern North Sea. The closest distance to land (Jaeren) is approximately 235 kilometers.

Seawell Inks 2 Year Extension for Maintenance Services on Gyda
Type: Contract Award

Aug. 2008 - Seawell Limited has been awarded a two year contract extension by Talisman for platform drilling and maintenance services on the Gyda field until December 2010.
