More gas from Gina Krog with Eirin
London, 15 September, 2023, (Oilandgaspress) – On behalf of the partnership, Equinor has submitted a plan for development and operation (PDO) of the Eirin gas field to the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy.
Recoverable reserves in the field are estimated at 27.6 million barrels of oil equivalent, most of which is gas. The Eirin field, which was discovered in 1978, will be developed as a subsea facility tied to the Gina Krog platform in the North Sea. Total investments are estimated at just over NOK 4 billion (2023 NOK).
Increased gas export from Gina Krog, by exporting gas that was previously injected to improve oil recovery, was an important contribution. At the same time, this brought the need to accelerate projects to extend the field life.
Eirin is a central part of this work, and the project has been matured in record time. Production start-up is expected as early as 2025.
