Consent for start-up of the Skirne field

The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) has granted Total E&P Norge AS its consent for start-up and operation of the Skirne field in Production License 102, block 25/5.


The licensees in Production License 102 are Total E&P Norge AS, Petoro AS, Marathon Petroleum Norge AS and Norsk Hydro Produksjon AS. Total is the operator for the Skirne field.

The Skirne field is located about 140 km northwest of Stavanger and has been developed with the two wells Skirne and Byggve. The distance from the Skirne well westward to the Heimdal platform (pictured) is 24 km. The Byggve well is located in between, 16 km east of Heimdal. Both fields have an sea depth of 120 m.
Skirne and Byggve are two small gas and condensate fields which were discovered in 1990 and 1991 and immediately declared commercial. Development plans were prepared, but held back due to financial uncertainty within the project.
