OKEA ASA has announced that the onshore work on the production unit for the Yme field – the Mærsk Inspirer jack-up rig – has been completed and the rig has been safely installed at the Yme field.

Following sail away from the Aker Egersund yard Mærsk Inspirer reached its targeted position at the Yme field in the evening of 31 December 2020.

The jack up process has been completed and Yme New Development project is now moving into the phase for hook-up, commissioning and preparation for production startup. Expected production start in 2021 remains unchanged and well within reach.

Okea holds a 15% working interest in the Yme field which is expected to add production of 7500 boe/d net to OKEA at plateau, and 4900 boe/d net to OKEA on average over the first year.

“This event represents a major milestone for the Yme New Development project and provides comfort to the targeted production start. Together with other ongoing projects, production from Yme will secure OKEA’s production growth in the years to come”, said Erik Haugane, CEO of OKEA.
