As new technology emerges, operators are turning their focus to redeveloping mature fields, creating a new focus for oil and gas companies. This growing demand has pressed companies in the service sector to broaden their skills and address a wider range of reservoir and production problems. Problems that are typical of aging fields are: wellstream pressure, increased volumes of produced water, solids production, loss of oil recovery and loss of compression.
Rigzone has compiled a list of five mature fields in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea that are currently being redeveloped to increase the field's life span and enhance production output.
