Fields

A field is one or more petroleum deposits, which together are comprised by an approved plan for development and operation (PDO) or for which exemption from the PDO requirement has been granted.

Since production started in 1971, oil and gas have been produced from a total of 102 fields on the Norwegian shelf. At the end of 2016, 80 fields were in production: 62 in the North Sea, 16 in the Norwegian Sea and two in the Barents Sea. Two new fields started producing in 2016, while a further nine were still under development at the end of the year.

Many of the producing fields are ageing, but some of them still have substantial remaining reserves. Moreover, the resource base in these fields increases when small discoveries in the area are tied in to existing infrastructure.

Original and remaining reserves are measured in million standard cubic metres oil equivalents (Sm³ o.e.).
