As partner, Det norske helped to ensure the progress of smaller developments. A Plan for Development and Operation (PDO) for Atla was approved in November (production licence 102C). Our interest in Atla is 10 percent. Det norske’s investment will be in the region of NOK 140 million. The first production is expected already towards the end of the year. This may give us an additional 1,000 barrels per day.
On Dagny in production licence 035, it has been decided to develop the field with a fixed platform and prepare a PDO. It is estimated that Dagny contains about 230 million barrels of recoverable oil and gas. The field extends into production licence 029B, in which Det norske has a 20 percent interest. Det norske’s net interest in the field will be decided during negotiations about unitisation. The plan is to submit the PDO in December 2012. Expected production start-up is towards the end of 2016.
