Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) Norway has given Equinor consent to use the facilities on the Tordis field beyond their original operating life.

Consent for operation of the Tordis field expires on December 31, 2019. In order to recover the remaining reserves from the field, Equinor has secured consent for the use of the facilities on the Tordis field until December 31, 2036.

Tordis is a field in the Tampen area in the northern part of the North Sea, between the Statfjord and Gullfaks fields. The water depth in the area is 150-220 meters.

Tordis was discovered in 1987, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 1991.

The field has been developed with a central subsea manifold tied-back to Gullfaks C, which also supplies water for injection. Seven single-well satellites and two subsea templates are tied-back to the manifold.

Production started in 1994.
