OMV (Norge) AS submitted a plan for development and operation (PDO) to the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy for the Berling (previously Iris Hades) gas and condensate discovery in production license (PL) 644 on Haltenbanken in the Norwegian Sea.
The recommended development concept for Berling field is a 4-slot subsea production template tied back via a 24-km pipeline to Equinor-operated Åsgard B platform.
The rich gas will be processed on Åsgard B and transported via the Åsgard Transport System for further processing at Kårstø gas processing plant. The condensate will be transferred to Åsgard and co-mingled with other Åsgard production for storage and export by shuttle tankers to the market. Recoverable resources are estimated to be about 45 MMboe.
The development cost is estimated at NOK 9.1 billion.
OMV (Norge) AS is the operator for the development and operations with 30% working interest. The license partners are Equinor Energy AS (40%), DNO Norge AS (20%) and Sval Energi AS (10%)
On Dec. 19, DNO said it was acquiring Sval Energi’s entire stake in the field, and the share will be transferred after government approval (OGJ Online, Dec. 19, 2022).
