    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).
    20.02.2021
    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.
    20.02.2021
    Recovery strategy
    The field is produced by depletion.
    22.12.2021
    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).
    23.11.2021
    Status
    Production started in November 2021.
