Fishbones announces the completion of a new production well with Lundin Energy
22 May 2021
Fishbones and Lundin Energy Norway have announced the completion of a new production well on the Edvard Grieg field.
Parts of the reservoir on Edvard Grieg consist of conglomerates, which is a hard and tight reservoir type. The Fishbones technology, which was used on the well, increases the effective drainage radius around the production wells by drilling several small holes out from the main well. This enables the production of increased oil in what is relatively tight reservoir rocks.
