The Varg field is around 200 kilometres from the coast west of Stavanger and belongs to production licence 038.
The field was developed in 1997/98 using an unmanned wellhead platform (Varg A) and the Petrojarl Varg FPSO vessel. Varg A and Petrojarl Varg are connected by a 1,200 metre long production and injection flow line and a control cable. Produced oil is loaded into tankers from Petrojarl Varg.
Expected start of production is the end of December 2013.
