Abstract

Cumulative oil production to the end of 2000 from the Don Field was 15.4 MMBBLS, which with an estimated STOIIP of 152 MMBBLS represents a recovery to date of 10%. Don has been producing for over ten years. The field lies 15 km N of the Thistle Field, at the western edge of the Viking Graben in the northern North Sea. The structure of the field is complex, and it comprises several segments, the two largest of which have been developed, Don NE and Don SW. The reservoir sequence is Middle Jurassic Brent Formation, but more deeply buried and of a more distal facies than is typical for other fields in the province.

The Don Field is a sub-sea development tied-back to the Thistle platform, and Britoil (BP) is the operator. The field has been developed with five producers, three in NE and two in SW, with a supporting water injection well in each part of the field. All wells have been drill deviated from a seabed manifold located over Don NE.
