Statoil Upgrades Natural Gas Reserves in Kvitebjoern
OSLO, Norway, Feb. 10, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- In the previous announcement, 29 billion cubic metres of natural gas was mistakenly referred to as 29 billion cubic metres of natural gas liquids (NGL).In terms of volume, this represents 29 billion cubic metres of natural gas and roughly 70 million barrels of condensate. The reason for the adjustment of the reserve estimation is that there is more condensate and gas in the reservoir than assumed. "It is good news that new data shows that the reservoir is shallower, larger and of better quality than expected," says Sigurd Geir Amland, operations vice president for Troll Gas and Kvitebjoern. "A find in the Cook formation has also made a positive contribution." The Kvitebjoern gas is sent ashore for treatment at Kollsnes near Bergen. The dry (sales) gas is sent through the transport network to the European market, while the NGL is sent on to the Vestprosess plant at Mongstad north of Bergen for fractionation to propane, butane and naphtha.
