OKEA ASA started production from the Hasselmus gas discovery on the western edge of the Trøndelag platform in the Norwegian Sea, 7 km northwest of the Draugen platform (OGJ Online, June 2, 2021).

Hasselmus is a subsea tieback to Draugen. A single well (6407/9-9 T2) was drilled on the Hasselmus structure by A/S Norske Shell in 1999 which encountered a 16 m gas column and a 6.8 m oil column in high quality sands at a depth of 1,700 m.

The Hasselmus project is expected to recover about 1.65 billion standard cu m of natural gas and will restart export of associated gas and NGL from Draugen.

OKEA is operator of the Draugen license and the Hasselmus project with 44.56% interest. Partners are Petoro AS (47.88%) and M Vest Energy AS (7.56%).
