    Development
    Dvalin is a field in the central part of the Norwegian Sea, 15 kilometres northwest of the Heidrun field. It consists of two separate structures that are 3.5 kilometres apart. Dvalin East was proven in 2010 and Dvalin West was proven in 2012. The water depth is 340 and 400 metres, respectively. The plan for development and production (PDO) was approved in 2017. The development concept is a subsea template with four production wells tied-back to the Heidrun platform. Production started in 2020.
    21.12.2021
    Reservoir
    Both Dvalin East and Dvalin West contain gas in Middle Jurassic sandstone in the Ile and Garn Formations. The reservoirs lie at a depth of 4,500 metres and have high pressure and high temperature (HPHT). The homogeneous shallow marine Garn sandstone has good reservoir quality, while the more heterogeneous and fine-grained Ile sandstone has less favourable reservoir properties.
    17.12.2020
    Recovery strategy
    The field is produced by pressure depletion.
    17.12.2020
    Transport
    The well stream is transported via pipeline to Heidrun for processing at a dedicated gas processing module. The gas is then transported via Polarled to Nyhamna for further processing before being exported as dry gas via Gassled to the market.
    17.12.2020
    Status
    Production from Dvalin is currently put on hold until a mercury removal solution is in place.
