The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) has granted consent for production start-up on the Ivar Aasen field in the North Sea.

The operator Aker BP, a merger between Det norske and BP, has scheduled start-up for December.

The Ivar Aasen field was developed with a production facility resting on the seabed at a water depth of 110 meters. Oil and gas from the field will undergo final processing on the Edvard Grieg field. Edvard Grieg will also cover Ivar Aasen’s power demand until a joint solution for power from shore is established for the Utsira High, NPD said.

The recoverable reserves from Ivar Aasen are estimated at 23.3 million standard cubic meters (Sm3) of oil, 4.4 billion Sm3 gas and 0.9 million tonnes of NGL.

Data from appraisal and development wells drilled after the submission of the Plan for Development and Operation (PDO) led to an increase in the estimate of recoverable volumes and volumes in place.

The development comprises production licences 001 B, 242, 338 BS and 457 BS in the North Sea.
