Aker BP begins production from Hanz oil and gas field in North Sea

Aker BP has started production from the Hanz oil and gas field located in licence 028 B in the Norwegian North Sea.

Hanz, which has total reserves of around 20 million barrels of oil equivalent, has been developed via a tieback to the Aker BP-operated Ivar Aasen platform, situated nearly 15km further south, on the Utsira High.

Aker BP CEO Karl Johnny Hersvik said: “This is yet another great example of what we can achieve working as one team with our suppliers towards a common goal and with shared incentives. In addition, innovative solutions with reuse of infrastructure and use of cross-flow well have contributed to lower costs and lower emissions.
