    Development
    Kristin is a field in the Norwegian Sea, a few kilometres southwest of the Åsgard field. The water depth is 370 metres. Kristin was discovered in 1997, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 2001. The field is developed with four 4-slot subsea templates tied-back to a semi-submersible facility for processing. Production started in 2005. An amended PDO was approved in 2007. The Tyrihans and Maria fields are tied to the Kristin facility.
    25.02.2020
    Reservoir
    Kristin produces gas and condensate from Jurassic sandstone in the Garn, Ile and Tofte Formations. The reservoirs lie at a depth of 4,600 metres and have high pressure and high temperature (HPHT). The reservoir quality is generally good, but low permeability in the Garn Formation and flow barriers in the Ile and Tofte Formations contribute to a rapid decline in reservoir pressure.
    16.03.2018
    Recovery
    The field is produced by pressure depletion. Low pressure production from the reservoir was implemented in 2014.
    25.02.2020
    Transport
    The well stream is processed at Kristin and the gas is transported via the Åsgard Transport System (ÅTS) to the Kårstø terminal. Light oil is transferred to the Åsgard C facility for storage and export. Condensate from Kristin is sold as oil.
    03.06.2019
    Status
    Kristin production is in the tail phase. The reservoir pressure has decreased faster than expected, leading to challenges such as production of water and sand. Total recovery from the field is therefore expected to be lower than the PDO estimates. A PDO for Kristin South including development of Kristin-Q area and Lavrans was delivered to the authorities in July 2021. Kristin South will be tied back to Kristin facility for processing and export.
