    Development
    Tambar is a field in the southern part of the Norwegian sector in the North Sea, 16 kilometres southeast of the Ula field. The water depth is 70 metres. Tambar was discovered in 1983, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 2000. The field has been developed with a remotely controlled wellhead platform tied-back to the Ula field. Production started in 2001.
    17.02.2021
    Reservoir
    Tambar produces oil from Upper Jurassic shallow marine sandstone in the Ula Formation. The reservoir lies at a depth of 4100-4200 metres and has generally very good characteristics.
    17.02.2021
    Recovery
    The field is produced by pressure depletion, with natural gas expansion combined with aquifer support. Gas lift is used to improve production performance.
    17.02.2021
    Transport
    The oil is transported by pipeline to Ula. After processing at Ula, the oil is exported in the pipeline system via the Ekofisk field to Teesside in the UK, while the gas is injected into the Ula reservoir to improve oil recovery.
    16.03.2018
    Status
    Production is declining due to decreased reservoir pressure and increased water cut. Studies are ongoing to evaluate water and/or gas injection to increase production.
