Extended lifespan for Skirne and Byggve

Total E & P Norge AS (Total) has received consent to use Skirne and Byggve beyond the originally planned operational life.


Skirne, including the Byggve deposit, is in the central North Sea, 20 kilometres east of Heimdal. Water depth at the site is 120 metres. The field has been developed using two subsea templates tied back to the Heimdal facility. Production began in 2004.

We have now given Total consent to extend the operational life of Skirne and Byggve to March 2024.

The consent is based on Total’s documentation of assessments that conclude that the facility can continue to be operated prudently in compliance with regulatory requirements. 

A consent for use beyond the originally planned operational life entails that, in the PSA’s opinion, the applicant has demonstrated having oversight of the technical conditions and has plans for maintenance and follow-up, such that the facilities and equipment may continue to be operated in compliance with regulatory requirements.
