Equinor Investing NOK10B in further developing the Oseberg field

The Oseberg Area Unit partners will reduce CO2 emissions from the Oseberg Field Centre and the Oseberg South platform while increasing Oseberg gas production. An amended plan for development and operation (PDO) has been submitted to the minister of petroleum and energy Marte Mjøs Persen.

Oseberg will be developed from primarily being an oil field to becoming a substantial gas producer with large remaining gas resources.

Two new compressors will be installed to boost recoverable gas volumes and the Oseberg Field Centre and Oseberg South platform will be partially electrified.

Plans call for start-up of the new facility in 2026.

The work to be carried out on the platforms is extensive as three big modules totalling 3400 tonnes will be installed. Rebuilding of the Oseberg Field Centre will take four years and give work to 70 people. On Oseberg South, 40 people will be occupied for one year. This will be done while the plants are in full operation and will require close and good cooperation between all the different players.
