Åsgard A, B and C

The Åsgard field is located in the Norwegian Sea about 260 kilometers west of Brønnøysund. The field has been developed with the Åsgard A installation (production ship) for production of oil and condensate. The gas is produced from a floating installation (Åsgard B), while the condensate is stored on the Åsgard C (storage ship).

The illustration shows the Åsgard A installation, the subsea installation Åsgard Q and other subsea installations that are not covered by this consent.

The Åsgard Q development includes installation of a well template (the Q template) with five well slots. Two 13-kilometer pipelines from the Q template will be connected to the risers on Åsgard A.

The Åsgard A installation is designed to process the wellstream from Åsgard Q, therefore modifications of the process facility on Åsgard A are not necessary.
