The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate has granted consent for the start-up of the Solveig field in the North Sea. Operator Lundin plans to start up the field this autumn.

Solveig (PL 359 LINK) will produce from subsea production facilities tied into the Edvard Grieg field, 15 km away. The oil and gas will be processed there before further transport.

Phase 1 consists of three wells for oil production, along with two wells that will be used to inject water. The field is expected to produce up to 2041.

The investment decision for Phase 2 will come later, based on experience and information from Phase 1.

The Plan for Development and Operation (PDO) estimated recoverable reserves from Solveig at 9.2 million m3 of oil equivalent in Phase 1. This is distributed between 6.98 million m3 oil (44 million bbl), 1.44 billion m3 sales gas and 0.42 million t NGL.
