The consent applies to the operation of Åsgard C until 30 September 2028.
Åsgard C is an FSO (Floating Storage and Offloading unit) used to store condensate produced by Åsgard and the Kristin/Tyrihans fields at Haltenbanken.
Åsgard is a field in the central part of the Norwegian Sea. The water depth in the area is 240-300 metres. Åsgard was discovered in 1981, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 1996. The field has been developed with subsea wells tied-back to a production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO), Åsgard A. The development also includes Åsgard B, a floating, semi-submersible facility for gas and condensate processing. The gas centre is connected to a storage vessel for condensate, Åsgard C. Production from Åsgard A began in 1999, while Åsgard B and C came on stream in 2000.
