Government-imposed restrictions at the various fabrication yards have impacted the schedule of the new Tyra topsides, the company said, including component deliveries from the global supply chain.
Installation of the four new topsides has now been rescheduled from 2021 to 2022, with first production from the redeveloped field center expected in 2Q 2023.
Tyra is the largest gas condensate field in the Danish sector, with the facilities historically processing more than 90% of gas produced in Denmark.
The redevelopment, which is due to seabed subsidence, involves removal and decommissioning of the original Tyra platform topsides; re-use and a 13-m (42.6-ft) extension (to offset the subsidence) of six current jackets which will each have new topsides; and the addition of a new process platform and a new accommodation platform.
Following the re-start, Tyra should deliver peak production of around 60,000 boe/d.
The Danish Underground Consortium, which owns Tyra, is a partnership between operator Total, Noreco, and Nordsøfonden (20%).
