Statoil's sub-surface team on the Oseberg field has been awarded the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate's prize for improved oil recovery (IOR) for its work in increasing recovery by means of gas injection.
The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate gives credit to the Oseberg specialists for their thorough efforts over many years to boost the value added by the field.
"We are proud and delighted to be awarded this prize, which has been given in recognition of Oseberg's long tradition of responsible resource management and commercial operations. There is a great willingness in our organization to continue this good work. Last year we managed to replace our production volume by new reserves in the Oseberg area. That is proof of perseverance in an area where we have producing for more than 20 years," said Carl Frederik Eek-Jensen, head of petroleum technology in the Oseberg organization.
