    Development
    Gimle is a field in the northern part of the North Sea, just northeast of the Gullfaks field. The water depth is 220 metres. Gimle was discovered in 2004, and was granted exemption from the plan for development and operation (PDO) requirement in 2006. The field is developed with three production wells and one water injection well drilled from the Gullfaks C facility. Production started in 2006.
    25.02.2020
    Reservoir
    Gimle produces oil from sandstone of Middle Jurassic age in the Brent Group. The main reservoir is in a downfaulted structure northeast of the Gullfaks field at a depth of 2,900 metres. Reservoir quality is generally good. There is also oil in sandstone of Late Triassic and Early Jurassic age.
    16.03.2018
    Recovery
    The field is produced by partial pressure support from water injection. Injection is temporarily stopped due to production shut down.
    25.02.2020
    Transport
    The production from Gimle is processed on the Gullfaks C facility and transported together with oil and gas from the Gullfaks field.
    Status
    Gimle is temporarily shut down due to low reservoir pressure. Drilling of a new production well from Gullfaks C is being evaluated to recover the remaining resources in Gimle.
