During 2014-2015, DONG Energy and its licence partner Bayerngas will be establishing the Hejre field in the North Sea. The field entails the largest individual investment in the Danish sector of the North Sea in recent years and significantly boost Denmark’s status as self-sufficient in oil and gas.
As of today, you can follow the development of the North Sea field on its own website and subscribe to news on the most significant activities and incidents of the development project.
The Hejre field which is located approximately 290 kilometres north-west of Esbjerg requires construction of a new combined Production, Drilling and Living Quarters platform with production from five new wells.
The Hejre field will be hooked up with existing infrastructure in the North Sea via new oil and gas pipelines transporting the production from the area. At the same time, the crude oil terminal in Fredericia is extended so that it will be able to handle the crude oil from the Hejre field.
It is expected that the field will start producing at the end of 2015, but already now, the project is well under way in the preparations for installation and commissioning.
