RWE Dea AG, Hamburg, has begun production in the newly developed Nini East crude oil field. The oil field is located some 200 kilometers off the Danish west coast in the North Sea, near the Nini and Cecilie fields already in production, in which RWE Dea also has a stake.

The oil reservoir is located at a depth of about 1,650 metres in the Hermod sandstone formation and contains a total of about 17 Mill. barrels of crude oil reserves. RWE Dea has a 30 per cent stake in the field and its production. DONG E&P (operator) has a 40 per cent share, partner Noreco has a 30 per cent stake.

The oil deposit is being produced from an unmanned platform that was installed at a water depth of 60 metres in 2009. The oil initially passes through two production wells to the Nini East platform, from where the oil is sent via Nini platform to the Siri platform, where it is processed and made ready for shipment.

“Following the successful launch of crude production from the Nini East field, we can now extend production in Denmark and prolong the lifetime of the Nini field,” explains Hugo Frik, Division Head of Production Europe at RWE Dea AG.
