Norsk Hydro Produksjon a.s has secured consent to use Fram Ost. The consent applies to start-up and operation of the field with appurtenant subsea installations and modifications on the Troll C facility.

The Fram Ost development includes two well template structures, each accommodating four wellheads. The plan calls for a total of five oil producers and two water injection wells.

The production line, umbilical and water injection lines will be hooked up to Troll C.

A gas lift pipeline will also be installed, in which the lift gas is taken from the Fram Vest gas injection pipeline. One well on Fram Ost will produce directly via a dedicated pipeline into the Fram Vest production line.

The Fram Ost Plan for Development and Operation (PDO) was approved by the King in Council on April 22, 2005. Planned start-up date for production from Fram Ost is October 31, 2006.
