    Status
    The production from Lange Formation started in 2019. Production from Marulk is limited by the commercial agreement with the Norne licensees and the gas handling capacity on the Norne FPSO. Excess capacity on the FPSO in recent years has made it possible to process larger volumes of gas from Marulk.
    21.12.2021
    Transport
    The well stream is sent to the Norne FPSO for processing. The gas is then transported via the Åsgard Transport System (ÅTS) to the Kårstø terminal.
    16.03.2018
    Recovery
    The field is produced by pressure depletion.
    16.03.2018
    Reservoir
    Marulk produces gas from Cretaceous sandstone in the Lysing- and Lange Formation. The reservoirs are located at a depth of 2,800 – 2,850 metres. Both reservoirs are in turbidite fans and have moderate to good quality.
    21.12.2021
    Development
    Marulk is a field in the Norwegian Sea, 25 kilometres southwest of the Norne field. The water depth is 370 metres. Marulk was discovered in 1992, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 2010. The field is developed with a subsea template tied-back to the production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO) Norne. Production started in 2012.
