Total shuts down North Sea field for good

Oct 27, 2004 02:00 AM

Norwegian North Sea natural gas field named Frigg, which is depleted now, has been shut down for good after 27 years of producing gas.
Total, Frigg's operator, awarded a contract of $ 466.6 mm worth to Norway's Aker Kvaerner for the removal of platforms and other infrastructure from the depleted field.

Frigg was one of the first discoveries on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. It straddles the median line between the British and Norwegian sectors of the North Sea.
Since it went online in September 1977, the field produced 192 bn cm of natural gas, worth an estimated $ 31.1 bn. Total E&P Norge, the Norwegian division of the French group, said 78 % of the reserves were recovered.

Total said several times it had postponed plans to close the field because "good methods for draining the reservoir, combined with cost-effectiveness and efficient organizational solutions, have contributed to extending the production."
