The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) has granted consent for start-up of the Trestakk field in the Norwegian Sea, with operator Equinor planning start-up this month.

Consent for start-up of Trestakk is granted to the licensees in production licence PL091.

Investments in the development of the field are expected to total approximately NOK4.8 billion.

Equinor estimates the recoverable volume from Trestakk at 67 million bbls of oil and 1.4 billion m3 of gas.

Trestakk is located about 25 km southeast of the Åsgard field. The field will be developed with a subsea template with four well slots and one satellite well.

The wellstream will be transported through a 12-in. production pipeline to the Åsgard A facility, where the wellstream will be processed. The plan is to produce the Trestakk reserves with pressure support in the form of gas injection.

The addition of Trestakk brings the total number of producing fields on the Norwegian shelf to 85.
