Development

Ærfugl Nord is a field in the northern part of the Norwegian Sea, just west of the Skarv field. The water depth is 350-450 metres. Ærfugl Nord was discovered in 2012, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 2018. The Ærfugl Nord development includes one production well tied-back to the Skarv production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO).

Reservoir

The reservoir contains gas and condensate in sandstone of Cretaceous age in the Lysing Formation. It has good properties and lies at a depth of 2800 metres.

Recovery strategy

The Field is produced by depletion.

Transport

The well stream is transported to the Skarv FPSO for processing. The condensate is offloaded to shuttle tankers, while the gas is transported to the Kårstø terminal in an 80-kilometre pipeline connected to the Åsgard Transport System (ÅTS).

Status

Production from Ærfugl Nord started in November 2021.
