Åsgard is a producing conventional gas field located in shallow water in Norway and is operated by Equinor Energy. The field is located in block 6507/11P (PL 062), 6407/2P (PL 074), 6406/3P (PL 094 B), 6407/3P (PL 237), 6506/11P (PL 134), 6506/12P (PL 094), 6506/9P (PL 479), and 6506/12P (PL 479), with water depth of 1,089 feet.
An expansion project is associated with the Åsgard, namely Smørbukk Development. This project is currently in the construction stage, expected to start in 2023.
Production from Åsgard
The Åsgard conventional gas field recovered 93.88% of its total recoverable reserves, with peak production in 2003. The peak production was approximately 194.13 thousand bpd of crude oil and condensate, 974 Mmcfd of natural gas and 60.73 thousand bpd of natural gas liquids. Based on economic assumptions, production will continue until the field reaches its economic limit in 2034. The field currently accounts for approximately 3% of the country’s daily output.
Remaining recoverable reserves
The field is expected to recover 157 Mmboe, comprised of 19.34 Mmbbl of crude oil & condensate, 612.63 bcf of natural gas reserves and 35.55 Mmbbl of natural gas liquid reserves. Åsgard conventional gas field reserves accounts 0.05% of total remaining reserves of producing conventional gas fields globally.
