    Development
    Visund Sør is a field in the northern part of the North Sea, 10 kilometres northeast of the Gullfaks C platform. The water depth is 290 metres. Visund Sør was discovered in 2008, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 2011. The field is developed with a subsea template tied to Gullfaks C. Production started in 2012.
    18.02.2020
    Reservoir
    Visund Sør produces oil and gas from Middle Jurassic sandstone in the Brent Group. The reservoir depth is 2,800-2,900 metres.
    16.03.2018
    Recovery
    The field is produced by pressure depletion.
    16.03.2018
    Transport
    The well stream is transported to Gullfaks C for processing and export.
    16.03.2018
    Status
    Production has been shut down due to low reservoir presser and high water cut ratio.
