    Status
    The field was shut down in 2004 and final disposal of the facilities was completed in 2010. An appraisal well was drilled on Frigg in 2019. A new field center for the area north of Alvheim field (NOA-project) is planned. PDO is expected in 2022, and this project can give opportunities to future re-development of Frigg.

    Development
    Frigg is a field in the central part of the North Sea, straddling the border between the UK and Norwegian sectors. The water depth is 100 metres. Frigg was discovered in 1971, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 1974. The field was developed with a living quarters facility (QP), two process facilities (TP1 and TCP2) and two drilling facilities (DP2 and CDP1). TP1, CDP1 and TCP2 had concrete substructures and steel frame topsides. The two other facilities had steel jackets. CDP1, TP1 and QP were on the UK part of the field. The facilities on the field also treated oil and gas from the fields Frøy, Nord Øst Frigg, Øst-Frigg, Lille-Frigg and Odin. Production started in 1977.
    11.02.2020
    Reservoir
    Frigg produced gas from deep marine, turbiditic sandstone of Eocene age in the Frigg Formation, at a depth of 1,900 metres.
    25.04.2019
    Transport
    The gas was transported via a 180-kilometre pipeline to the Shell-Esso Gas and Liquids (SEGAL) terminal at St Fergus in the UK.
    16.03.2018
    Recovery
    The field was produced by pressure depletion.
