    Development
    Ringhorne Øst is a field in the central part of the North Sea, six kilometres northeast of the Balder field. The water depth is 130 metres. Ringhorne Øst was discovered in 2003, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 2005. The field is developed with four production wells drilled from the Ringhorne wellhead platform. Production started in 2006.
    25.02.2020
    Reservoir
    Ringhorne Øst produces oil with associated gas from Jurassic sandstone in the Statfjord Group. The reservoir lies at a depth of 1,940 metres and has very good quality.
    25.04.2019
    Recovery
    The field is produced by natural water drive from a regional aquifer to the north and east of the structure. The wells have gas lift to optimise production, and this will be expanded due to increasing water production.
    11.04.2017
    Transport
    Production is routed from the Ringhorne wellhead platform to the Balder production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO) for processing, storage and export. The oil is transported by tankers. Any surplus gas is sent to the Jotun FPSO for export via Statpipe to the Kårstø terminal.
    27.02.2020
    Status
    The field is in its tail phase. Several new infill wells are planned to be drilled in the coming years. Ringhorne Øst will also benefit from an amended PDO for Balder and Ringhorne that was submitted in 2019. Field lifetime will be prolonged, and production can benefit from increased capacity in the area.
