    Development
    Nordøst Frigg is a field in the central part of the North Sea. The water depth is 110 metres. The field was discovered in 1974, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 1980. Nordøst-Frigg was developed with a seabed template with six wells and was remotely operated from the Frigg field using a control tower. The control tower consisted of a deck and a 126-metre-high steel structure attached to a concrete foundation. Production started in 1983.
    25.04.2019
    Reservoir
    Nordøst Frigg produced gas from sandstone of Eocene age in the Frigg Formation. The reservoir lies at a depth of 1,950 metres. It has pressure communication with the reservoir on the Frigg field via the aquifer.
    26.02.2020
    Recovery
    The field was produced by pressure depletion.
    11.04.2017
    Transport
    The well stream was sent via pipeline to Frigg (TCP2) for further processing before export through the Frigg Norwegian Pipeline to St Fergus in the UK.
    16.03.2018
    Status
    The field was shut down in 1993 and the facility was removed in 1996. 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 Nordøst Frigg.
