    Development
    Øst Frigg is a field in the central part of the North Sea, four kilometres east of the Frigg field. The water depth is 100 metres. Øst Frigg was discovered in 1973, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 1984. The field was developed with two subsea templates and a central manifold station tied to the Frigg field. Production started in 1988.
    25.04.2019
    Reservoir
    Øst Frigg produced gas from sandstone of Eocene age in the Frigg Formation. The reservoir lies at a depth of 1900 metres and has excellent quality. The field contains two separate structures, which are part of the same pressure system as the Frigg field.
    25.04.2019
    Recovery
    The field was produced by pressure depletion.
    16.03.2018
    Transport
    Gas was transported in a pipeline from the manifold to the Frigg field (TCP2) for processing, and further via pipeline the Shell-Esso Gas and Liquids (SEGAL) terminal at St Fergus in the UK.
    16.03.2018
    Status
    Production was shut down in 1997 and the subsea templates were removed in 2001. The facilities planned for NOA (North of Alvheim) and Fulla discovery can give opportunities for future re-development of Øst Frigg. PDOs for NOA and Fulla are expected in 2022.
