Fossil Energy – Bauge Field
On 8 April production started from the Bauge subsea field in the Norwegian Sea. Bauge is tied back to the recently upgraded Njord platform.
Recoverable reserves in Bauge are estimated at 50 million barrels of oil equivalent, mainly oil.
Bauge consists of two oil producers in a subsea template, in addition to pipelines and an umbilical connecting the wells to the Njord A platform. The Bauge licensees are Equinor (operator), Wintershall Dea, Vår Energi and Neptune Energy.
The Norwegian content of the Bauge project is well over 90 percent. The wells were delivered faster than planned by Transocean and Schlumberger.
