DevelopmentØrn is a field in the northern part of the Norwegian Sea, 20 kilometres northwest of the Skarv field. The water depth is 380 metres. Ørn was discovered in 2019, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in June 2023. The development concept includes a subsea template with four slots tied-back to the Skarv floating production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO).
ReservoirThe reservoir contains gas and condensate in sandstone of Middle Jurassic age in the Garn and Not Formations. It is at a depth of about 4100 metres and has good quality.
Recovery strategyThe field will be produced by pressure depletion.
TransportThe gas will be exported via the Åsgard Transport System (ÅTS) to the terminal at Kårstø. Oil and condensate will be offloaded from the Skarv FPSO to shuttle tankers.
StatusØrn is being developed together with Idun Nord and Alve Nord as part of the Skarv Satellite Project (SSP). The Production is planned to start in 2027.
