Martin Linge

Martin Linge is a field near the border to the UK sector in the northern part of the North Sea, 42 kilometres west of the Oseberg field. The water depth is 115 metres. Martin Linge was discovered in 1978 and the plan for development and operations (PDO) was approved in 2012. The development concept is a fully integrated fixed production platform and a floating, storage and offloading unit (FSO) for oil storage. 

The field is under development.
