Aker BP receives consent to perform gas lift modifications at Tambar

10/12/2017

STAVANGER -- The Petroleum Safety Authority of Norway has now given Aker BP consent to perform modifications relating to gas lift at Tambar. The gas lift project is part of a major field development project at Tambar. The field development project involves a drilling campaign of two new wells, gas lift for existing and new wells, an operating life extension, and some minor modifications.

The gas lift project will use an existing pipeline between Ula and Gyda to supplement Tambar with gas lift from Ula.

The consent now given covers gas lift equipment for wells at Tambar. It also includes installation of a new gas lift module and associated control functions.

The gas lift is being installed because the reservoir pressure at Tambar is no longer sufficient to ensure satisfactory production. The gas lift project is therefore highly important for further recovery of remaining reserves in the field.
