Frigg Field Agreement

The development and operation of fields beyond UKCS borders or fields entirely located on either continental shelf, which require the construction of new pipeline or well infrastructure and cross-border controls, require formal agreement between the States concerned. The agreement may subordinate part or all of the agreement to the agreement of the contracting parties. The operations were governed by an agreement between the British government and the Norwegian government, the Frigg Treaty. The Frigg Bridge in front of the Norwegian Petroleum Museum in the Frigg-Gasfeld Stavanger is a natural gas field located on the Norwegian block 25/1[1] in the North Sea, on the border between the United Kingdom and Norway. The field is named after the goddess Frigg. King Olav V of Norway officially opened production on May 8, 1978. Production ceased on October 26, 2004. The field is located 230 kilometres northwest of Stavanger. The operator of the field was the French oil company Elf Aquitaine, which merged and changed its name to Total S.A. This list may not cover all contracts and agreements and it is best to confirm contact with the corresponding OGA zone team. The field was discovered in 1971 at a depth of 1,850 meters by the Petronord group (Elf Aquitaine, Total Oil Marine Norsk and Norsk Hydro) and the Norwegian state with the Well 25/1-1 with the semi-submersible Neptun P 81 in 100 meters of water. [2] The well was based on the interpretation of a 15-kilometre grid on 20 lines of reflected seismology recorded in 1965. [2] In 1969, a thinner network of 5 km by five km seismic lines was recorded, followed in 1973 by a 1 km by 1 km grid, combined with four assessment wells that determined that the field was 115 square kilometres long and that a 170-metre-long gas column in the Lower Eocene sandstones formed a chasm in the Pool of the Wikinger structure.

[2] The fan structure appears on seismic sections as a low relief anticline that contains a flat spot caused by gas density. [3] It is recommended that takers obtain specific guidance from the OPC during the screening phase for any development proposal that may have cross-border effects. The approval period for cross-border domains depends on the level of correspondence required between the states concerned. It is likely that the issues that need to be addressed in such intergovernmental negotiations will vary from project to project. However, the main political objective will be to create a framework to ensure that the benefits of such a development are distributed equitably and equitably.
