    Development
    Mime is a field in the southern part of the Norwegian sector in the North Sea, six kilometres northeast of the Cod field. The water depth is 80 metres. Mime was discovered in 1982, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 1992. The field was developed with a subsea well tied to the Cod facility. Production started 1993.
    16.03.2018
    Reservoir
    Mime produced oil from sandstone of Late Jurassic age in the Ula Formation. The reservoir depth is 4,200 metres.
    16.03.2018
    Recovery
    The filed was produced by pressure depletion.
    16.03.2018
    Transport
    The well stream from Mime was mixed with gas and condensate from the Cod field and transported to the Ekofisk Complex. The oil was transported further to Teesside in the UK, whereas the gas was used at the Ekofisk Complex.
