Norne is a field in the Norwegian Sea, 80 kilometres north of the Heidrun field. The water depth is 380 metres. Norne was discovered in 1992, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 1995. The field has been developed with a production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO), connected to seven subsea templates. Production started in 1997. An amended PDO for several deposits in the area around the Norne and Urd fields was approved in 2008. The Alve, Urd, Skuld and Marulk fields are tied-back to the Norne FPSO.
