Major milestone: PDO’s for Njord and Bauge approved by the authorities
Plans for development and operations for the Njord and Bauge fields in the Norwegian Sea have been approved by the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy.

The Njord A platform and the Njord Bravo storage tanker (FSU) are to be upgraded, in order to extend the lifetime of the Njord and Hyme fields. The Bauge field is planned to be developed and tied back to the Njord platform, taking advantage of the existing Hyme infrastructure. Total gross capital expenditures for both fields will be around 2 billion Euros (19.8 billion Norwegian Kroner). Start-up of production is expected in Q4 2020.

“The approval of the plans for development and operations (PDO) marks an important milestone for the projects. Njord and Bauge are important fields on the Norwegian Continental Shelf and key fields in DEA’s portfolio”, says Hans-Hermann Andreae, Managing Director of DEA Norge. DEA Norge holds a 50% interest in Njord and 27.5% in Bauge.
