The Det norske oljeselskap ASA (DETNOR) and Premier Oil Norge AS (PON) are jointly planning to undertake the redevelopment of Froy Field in the northern sea of Norway.

The project involves the redevelopment of an oil field. It includes the drilling of eight wells which will connect to a new jack up platform and the construction of production facilities, storage facilities and drilling of three new production wells and the installation of machines and safety equipments.

Froy will be developed with a jackup platform containing drilling and production facilities. Oil will be stored in a tank located on the seabed prior to offloading to shuttle tankers for transport to the market. The produced gas, together with water, will be injected into the reservoir as pressure support, thus enhancing recovery.

In September 2008, a plan for development and operation (PDO) of the field was submitted to the Royal Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy (NMPE).

In early 2009, NMPE extended the license period of PL 364 to 10 years until 2019.

In January 2010, Sevan Marine ASA (Sevan) was awarded a study contract. DETNOR entered into a Heads of Agreement with Teekay Petrojarl AS to lease a jackup production unit for the field.

EPC Offshore was appointed as the consulting engineer whose scope of work includes a comprehensive review of the gate deliverables Commercial, Contracts, Facilities, Subsurface, Wells, HSES, Cost and Schedule, Risk on the project.

DETNOR, prepared a renewed plan for development and operations (PDO) in 2010. The plan was to submit the revised PDO in 2010 with a FPSO concept. However, this was delayed in order to evaluate the possibility of using simultaneous water and gas injection (SWAG), rather than gas and water injection (WAG) only as a production strategy. The results from these studies indicated that SWAG only had a marginal impact on project economics.Scope
