    Development
    Hod is a field in the southern part of the Norwegian sector in the North Sea, about 13 kilometres south of the Valhall field. The water depth is 72 metres. Hod was discovered in 1974, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 1988. The field was developed with an unmanned wellhead platform, remotely controlled from Valhall. Production started in 1990. A PDO for Hod Saddle was approved in 1994. A PDO for the redevelopment of Hod was approved in December 2020.
    17.02.2021
    Reservoir
    Hod produces oil from chalk in the Upper Cretaceous Tor and Hod Formations and the lower Paleocene Ekofisk Formation. The Tor Formation chalk is fine-grained and soft. Considerable fracturing allows oil and water to flow more easily than in the underlying Hod Formation. The reservoir depth is 2,700 metres. The field consists of three structures: Hod West, Hod East and Hod Saddle.
    16.03.2018
    Recovery
    The field is produced by pressure depletion. Gas lift has been used in some wells to increase production.
    11.04.2017
    Transport
    Oil and gas are transported in a shared pipeline to the Valhall field for further processing. Transport of oil and NGL from Valhall is routed via pipeline to the Ekofisk Centre and further to Teesside in the UK. Gas from Valhall is sent via Norpipe to Emden in Germany.
    11.04.2017
    Status
    There has been no production from the Hod platform since 2013, and it awaits decommissioning within 2026. Production from the Hod Saddle area is ongoing through wells drilled from the Valhall field. Hod is currently being redeveloped by installing a new wellhead platform tied-in to the Valhall field centre.
