Equinor begins production from Bauge oil and gas field in Norwegian Sea

Equinor Energy and its partners have started production from the Bauge oil and gas field in the southern Norwegian Sea, which has been developed with an investment of NOK4.6bn ($438.2m).

Bauge is tied back to the Equinor-operated Njord platform, which went through an upgrading project that was completed in December 2022 to produce for another 20 years.

The Njord platform and the floating storage and offloading vessel (FSO) at the Njord field have been prepared to accept production from the Bauge and Fenja fields, which have combined recoverable resources of 110 million barrels.

Bauge’s recoverable reserves are projected at 50 million barrels of oil equivalent, made up of mainly oil.
