    Development
    Tor is a field in the southern part of the Norwegian sector in the North Sea, 13 kilometres northeast of the Ekofisk field. The water depth is 70 metres. Tor was discovered in 1970, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 1973. The field was shut down in 2015. A new PDO for the redevelopment of Tor was approved in 2019. The development includes two subsea templates with eight horizontal production wells, tied-back to the Ekofisk Centre. Production started again in 2020.
    13.12.2022
    Reservoir
    The reservoir contains oil and gas in fractured chalk of Late Cretaceous age in the Tor Formation and of early Paleocene age in the Ekofisk Formation. There are significant remaining resources in both formations. The reservoir depth is 3,200 metres.
    25.11.2019
    Recovery
    The field is produced by natural pressure depletion.
    05.12.2020
    Transport
    The well stream is transported by pipeline to the processing facility at the Ekofisk Centre and further to Teesside in the UK and Emden in Germany.
    05.12.2020
    Status
    Production from the field is according to plan. The original facility will be removed by the end of 2024.
