Equinor today hailed production start-up from the 76 million barrel Trestakk subsea tieback project off Norway.

The field was developed has a tieback to the Asgard A platform and should produce 44,000 barrels per day at peak.

It is expected to produce for 12 years.

Equinor said it had managed to cut the budget by £45 million to £470m thanks to the “ample time” spent on maturing the project alongside partners ExxonMobil and Var Energi, and the main supplier, TechnipFMC.

Trestakk field development covers a subsea template with four well slots and one satellite well.

A total of five wells will be drilled: three for production and two for gas injection.

Asgard A was modified to receive the production from Trestakk.

Meanwhile, Equinor wildcat well 16/5-7 to the west of the Johan Sverdrup field was revealed to be dry by the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate.
