Fields

A field is one or several discoveries combined which the licensees have decided to develop, and for which the authorities have approved a plan for development and operation (PDO) or granted a PDO exemption.

Since production started in 1971, oil and gas have been produced from a total of 107 fields on the Norwegian shelf. At the end of 2017, 85 fields were in production: 66 in the North Sea, 17 in the Norwegian Sea and two in the Barents Sea. Five new fields started producing in 2017, 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 given in million standard cubic metres of oil equivalents (mill. Sm³ o.e.).
