Early analysis indicates the find is commercial, with 6 MMboe to 22 MMboe recoverable. It is also the company’s third discovery in Norwegian waters over the past six months.
Odin Estensen, managing director for Norwegian and UK operations, said, “Together with our partners in the Calypso license [PL938], we will now study options to effectively develop the discovery using nearby infrastructure.”
Calypso is 14 km northwest of the Draugen Field, operated by license partner OKEA, and 22 km northeast of the Njord A platform.
