中国石化新闻网讯 据油价网5月3日消息称,在挪威大陆架运营的公司正计划在巴伦支海的北极地区进行更多钻探,挪威政府希望发现更多的石油和天然气,以加强能源安全,并帮助欧洲伙伴提供能源供应。


上周在哈默费斯特举行的巴伦支海会议上,挪威石油和能源部长Terje Aasland呼吁石油和天然气公司履行其“社会责任”,“不遗余力”在巴伦支海寻找更多的天然气资源,据估计,该地区蕴藏着挪威大部分未发现的石油和天然气资源。


“在北方的石油探险才刚刚开始”,Aasland说,并补充说政府将帮助巴伦支海工业,因为挪威必须发展而不是清算其石油工业。


巴伦支海北部除了环境恶劣之外,还为开发油气资源设置了另一个障碍——北部大陆架上较发达地区缺乏基础设施,基础设施将使管道运输和资源开发更加容易。


不过,运营商并没有放弃。


巴伦支地区能源生产商Var Energi的首席执行官Torger Rod在接受彭博社采访时表示:“即使我们想保持产量,我们也必须进行更多的探索,我们必须找到更多。”


今年3月,Var Energi证实在位于Hammerfest西北部Goliat附近的一个生产许可区域的Countach井发现了石油,Goliat是巴伦支海两个正在运营的油气田之一。


Var Energi将考虑潜在的商业开发方案,并将该发现与Goliat FPSO挂钩。


“这是近年来巴伦支海一系列成功探井中的又一个发现,其中包括2022年在挪威大陆架上发现的最大的Lupa。与此同时,这一发现证实了我们的勘探战略和我们在该地区的地位。”Var Energi勘探和生产执行副总裁Rune Oldervoll说。


Equinor计划在2024年底从巴伦支海的Johan Castberg油田开始生产,并希望在北极获得更多许可证。


今年年初,挪威石油和能源部提议在预定区域(ARA)的下一轮许可中包括挪威海和巴伦支海的其他区域,许可证预计将于2024年初颁发。


Equinor负责北方勘探和生产的高级副总裁Grete Birgitte Haaland告诉彭博社:“北方对我们来说一直很重要。”

Norway Set To Accelerate Arctic Oil And Gas Drilling


Companies operating in the Norwegian Continental Shelf are planning for more drilling in the Arctic areas in the Barents Sea, encouraged by Norway’s government which wants more oil and gas discoveries to boost energy security and help European partners with energy supply.


At a conference on the Barents Sea in Hammerfest last week, Norway’s Petroleum and Energy Minister Terje Aasland called on oil and gas companies to fulfill their “social responsibility” and “leave no stone unturned” to find more natural gas resources in the Barents Sea, the area estimated to hold most of Norway’s undiscovered oil and gas resources.


“The petroleum adventure in the north has only just started,” Aasland said, adding that the government would help the Barents Sea industry as Norway must develop, not liquidate, its petroleum industry.


Apart from being in a harsher environment so far north, the Barents Sea poses another roadblock to developing oil and gas resources—the north lacks the infrastructure in the more developed areas on the shelf that would make tie-ups and resource development easier.


Still, operators are not giving up.


“Even if we want to maintain production, we have to explore more, we have to find more,” Torger Rod, CEO of Barents-focused energy producer Var Energi, told Bloomberg in an interview.


In March, Var Energi confirmed an oil discovery in the Countach well in a production license northwest of Hammerfest near Goliat, one of two operational oil and gas fields in the Barents Sea.


Var Energi will consider potential commercial development options and tie-in of the discovery to Goliat FPSO.


“This discovery is yet another in a series of successful exploration wells in the Barents Sea in recent years, including Lupa – the largest discovery on the Norwegian shelf in 2022. At the same time, the discovery confirms our exploration strategy and our position in the area,” said Rune Oldervoll, EVP Exploration and Production in Var Energi.


Equinor, which plans to start production from the Johan Castberg field in the Barents Sea at the end of 2024, is also betting on obtaining more licenses in the Arctic.


Early this year, the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy proposed including additional areas in the Norwegian Sea and the Barents Sea in the next licensing round for Awards in Predefined Areas (ARA) expected to be awarded in early 2024.


“The North has always been important for us,” Grete Birgitte Haaland, senior vice president for exploration and production north at Equinor, told Bloomberg.
