Consent for operation of the Marulk field expires on 31 December 2021. In order to recover the remaining reserves from the field, Vår Energi, the operator, has applied for consent to extend the operating life of the subsea facilities on the field.

We have now granted consent for the use of the subsea facilities on the Marulk field until 31 December 2030.


Marulk is a field in the Norwegian Sea, 25 kilometres southwest of the Norne field. The water depth in the area is 370 metres. Marulk was discovered in 1992, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 2010. The field is developed with a subsea template tied-back to the production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO) Norne. Production started in 2012.
