Discoveries

A discovery is a petroleum deposit or several petroleum deposits collectively, which have been discovered in the same well, in which through testing, sampling or logging there has been established a probability of the existence of mobile petroleum. The definition covers both commercial and technical discoveries. A discovery receives the status of a field, or becomes part of an existing field, when a plan for development and operation (PDO) is approved by the authorities or when an exemption from the PDO requirement has been granted.

There are currently about 95 discoveries that could be, or are being, considered for development. Most of them are small and will be developed as satellites to existing fields. This will ensure that the infrastructure is used efficiently. Stand-alone development solutions are planned for the largest discoveries, but a number of smaller discoveries may also collaborate on building new infrastructure.
