Equinor discovers Oil and gas in Norwegian Sea
Equinor and partners Total E&P Norge AS and Vår Energi AS have struck oil and gas in a new segment belonging to the Tyrihans field in the Norwegian Sea. Recoverable resources are so far estimated at between 3.0 and 4.2 million standard cubic metres of recoverable oil equivalent, corresponding to 19 – 26 million barrels of oil equivalent.
“It is encouraging to prove new resources that can extend the life of producing fields in the Norwegian Sea,” says Nick Ashton, Equinor’s senior vice president for exploration on the Norwegian continental shelf.
Exploration well 6407/1-A-3 BH in production licence 073 was drilled from subsea template A at Tyrihans North. The Tyrihans field is located in the middle of the Norwegian Sea, some 25 kilometres south-east of the Åsgard field and 220 kilometres north-west of Trondheim. The licensees consider the discovery commercial and intend to start production immediately.
