Without pressure support production from this field will decrease from 2007. The main reservoir on Sleipner West is produced via the unstaffed Sleipner B wellhead platform. Gas and condensate are processed and exported from the Sleipner T gas treatment installation.
"The compressor project enhances the Sleipner area's position as an important gas producer and hub for further transportation," says Astrid Sorensen, senior vice president for the Troll/Sleipner business cluster.
"The compressor module will also speed up the gas and condensate production.
"This is not the first compressor project to be carried out on Sleipner West in order to maintain production and further develop the area. In 2004 a precompression module was installed on Sleipner T."
