Spirit Energy has clearance from both the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) and Norway’s Petroleum Safety Authority to start operations at the Oda field in the southern Norwegian North Sea. These operations could begin in February or March. Oda was discovered in 2011 at a water depth of 65 m. Development includes two production wells tied back to the Aker BP-operated Ula complex, 10 km to the west, and one injection well for pressure support. Produced gas will be sold to the Ula licensees for use as injection gas for alternating water and gas injection. Oil will be exported through Ula’s existing export pipeline by the Ekofisk field to the Teesside terminal in northeast England.
