Lundin Petroleum AB through its wholly owned subsidiary Lundin Norway AS announced the approval from the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy of the Plan for Development and Operation (PDO) for the Brynhild field in PL148, located in the Norwegian North Sea. First production from the Brynhild field is expected in late 2013.
The Brynhild field is located adjacent to the Norway-United Kingdom border, some 210 km from the Norwegian mainland. The development of Brynhild will be a three well subsea tie-back to the Pierce FPSO located in the United Kingdom, 38 km south of the field.
The estimated gross reserves are approximately 20 million barrels of oil equivalents (MMboe) with net peak production of approximately 12,000 barrels of oil equivalents per day (boepd). The hydrocarbons will be processed at the Pierce FPSO before being offloaded for further transportation.
Lundin Petroleum has a 50 percent working interest in the Brynhild field and is operator. Partners are Talisman with 30 percent and Noreco with 20 percent.
