Ula reached 30 years of production in October 2016.

The Ula hub consists of three conventional steel facilities for production, drilling and accommodation, and is connected by bridges. The gas capacity at the field was updated in 2008 with a new gas processing and injection module. The water depth in the area is about 70 metres.

The satellite field Tambar and Tambar East is located about 16 kilometres southeast of the Ula field, and are developed with a wellhead platform without processing facilities remotely controlled from Ula.

The Ula hub also act as a third-party host for the Blane (production start-up 2007) and Oselvar (production start-up 2009) fields via subsea tie-back’s. The Oda (operated by Centrica) development project was sanctioned with tie in to Ula, and plan for development and operations (PDO) was submitted to the authorities 30 November 2016.

To increase oil production, water alternating gas (WAG) are injected into the Ula reservoir, where the gas is provided from the satellite fields.

The oil is exported through a 20” pipeline via Ekofisk to Teeside. All gas is re-injected into the reservoir to enhance recovery of oil.
