The Solveig field is operated by Lundin Energy Norway AS. First gas is expected in 3Q21 and will be processed through Ancala Midstream’s capacity in the Beryl pipeline and the Scottish Area Gas Evacuation pipeline and terminal (SAGE System) at St. Fergus in Scotland.
Aberdeen-headquartered Ancala Midstream will also provide transportation and processing for Lundin’s extended production test on the Rolvsnes field which is expected to commence production in 3Q22 and is also located in the Norwegian Sector of the North Sea.
Solveig is the first of two new fields tying into Ancala Midstream’s capacity in the SAGE System in 2021 and will increase Ancala Midstream’s throughput in the SAGE System to 55%.
Jim Halliday, Chief Executive of Ancala Midstream, commented: “The addition of two new fields and the substantial reserves growth from the prolific Edvard Grieg area, provides further evidence of the strong prospectivity in the SAGE catchment area, as well as the confidence our customers have in the SAGE System as their offtake system of choice. We have worked closely with Lundin to develop innovative solutions to the technical challenges faced and in doing so reduced project development costs for the Solveig and Rolvsnes Owners. Ancala Midstream’s growth since 2017 shows that our operating and commercial strategy is delivering results. We would like to thank the other SAGE owners for their collaboration.”
Kristin Færøvik, Managing Director, Lundin Energy Norway, commented: “We greatly appreciate the support we have received from the Ancala Midstream team in securing the transportation and processing agreements for the Solveig and Rolvsnes fields, which are key elements of our Edvard Grieg field hub growth strategies. We look forward to future additions to the portfolio and further business with Ancala Midstream.”
