    Development
    Heimdal is a field in the central part of the North Sea. The water depth is 120 metres. Heimdal was discovered in 1972, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 1981. The field was developed with an integrated drilling, production and accommodation facility with a steel jacket (HMP1). Production started in 1985. The PDO for Heimdal Jurassic was approved in 1992. The PDO for the Heimdal Gas Centre was approved in 1999, and included a new riser facility, connected by a bridge to HMP1. Heimdal is now a processing centre for other fields, presently Atla, Skirne, Vale and Valemon, and for Huldra until production ceased in 2014. The Huldra pipeline to Heimdal is now used for transport of rich gas from Valemon. Heimdal also serves as a hub for rich gas transported from Oseberg to continental Europe via the Draupner platforms.
    07.12.2022
    Reservoir
    Heimdal produced gas and some condensate from sandstone of Paleocene age in the Heimdal Formation. The reservoir lies in a massive turbidite system at a depth of 2,100 metres and has good quality.
    17.02.2021
    Recovery
    The field was produced by pressure depletion.
    17.02.2021
    Transport
    Originally, gas from Heimdal was transported in Statpipe via the Draupner and Ekofisk fields to continental Europe. When the Heimdal Gas Centre was established, a new gas pipeline was connected to the existing gas pipeline from the Frigg field to St Fergus in the UK. Gas can now also be transported via Vesterled to St Fergus. A gas pipeline was laid from Heimdal to the Grane field for gas injection at Grane. Condensate is transported by pipeline to the Brae field in the UK sector and further to Cruden Bay in the UK.
    16.03.2018
    Status
    Most of the wells were permanently plugged in 2015, and production from Heimdal ceased in 2020. Heimdal is used as a gas processing centre for tied-in fields until 2023. A decommissioning plan for Heimdal was submitted in 2020. Work is ongoing to prepare for cease of gas processing at the Heimdal platform.
