Consent for modifications relating to gas lift at Tambar

We have now given Aker BP consent to perform modifications relating to gas lift at Tambar


Tambar is an oil field in the southern part of the Norwegian sector of the North Sea. Aker BP is the field's operator.

The gas lift project is part of a major field development project at Tambar. The field development project involves a drilling campaign of two new wells, gas lift for existing and new wells, an operating life extension, and some minor modifications.

The gas lift project will use an existing pipeline between Ula and Gyda to supplement Tambar with gas lift from Ula.

The consent now given covers gas lift equipment for wells at Tambar. It also includes installation of a new gas lift module and associated control functions.

The gas lift is being installed because the reservoir pressure at Tambar is no longer sufficient to ensure satisfactory production. The gas lift project is therefore highly important for further recovery of remaining reserves in the field.
