COPENHAGEN, DenmarkTotalEnergies has restarted production from the Tyra hub in the Danish North Sea, following a redevelopment of the facilities.

At peak, the hub will produce 5.7 MMcm/d of gas and 22,000 bbl/d, making Denmark again self-sufficient in gas and also a net exporter to other countries in Europe.

TotalEnergies operates the Tyra Field on behalf of its Danish Underground Consortium partners BlueNord and Nordsøfonden.

“The new Tyra leverages state-of-the-art digital solutions and technological innovations to produce more efficiently and with 30% lower greenhouse-gas emissions than the former facilities,” said Nicolas Terraz, president of Exploration & Production with TotalEnergies.

Maersk Oil discovered Tyra in 1968, 225 km west of Esbjerg. Gas production was suspended in September 2019 for the overhaul project, which involved decommissioning of existing facilities and commissioning of eight new platform topsides, two jackets and six bridges.

About 98.5% of the materials recovered from the removed installations have been reused or recycled, TotalEnergies claims. 

Gas from the Tyra hub is exported to Europe through two pipelines to Nybro in Denmark and Den Helder in the Netherlands. 

According to BlueNord, the redevelopment will also unlock gross reserves of more than 200 MMboe, extend field life by 25 years, and decrease opex and emissions intensity. The license currently expires in 2042.

The focus now is on bringing the Tyra fields and the Valdemar, Roar, Harald and Svend satellites back onstream, said BlueNord COO Marianne Eide, with an expected ramp-up period of four months.
