30/11-8 S (Krafla) is a discovery in the central North Sea, 35 kilometres south of the Oseberg field. The water depth is 110 metres. The discovery was proven in 2011. During extensive drilling campaigns in 2014 and 2016, a total of 11 discoveries were proven in the Krafla, Askja and Central area, which extends over 200 square kilometres. The reservoirs contain gas and oil in Middle Jurassic sandstone of the Brent Group at depths of 3,200-3,650 metres. These discoveries are planned developed as a part of a larger development in the area between the Oseberg and Alvheim fields as subsea tie-backs to an unmanned process platform at Askja. This platform is planned tied back to a new process platform at Frigg-GammaDelta. The plan for development and operation (PDO) is expected to be submitted late 2022.
