Aker BP said it is nearing completion of drilling the Øst Frigg Beta/Epsilon exploration well, situated in the Yggdrasil area of the Norwegian North Sea, and has made a significant oil discovery.

Preliminary estimates indicate a gross recoverable volume of 40-90 million barrels of oil equivalent (mmboe), surpassing the pre-drill estimate of 18-45 mmboe. Aker BP said the discovery enhances the resource base for the Yggdrasil development, which was previously stated at 650 mmboe (gross). The company had submitted a Plan for Development and Operations (PDO) for Yggdrasil to Norwegian authorities in December 2022, with production scheduled to commence in 2027.

“We are extremely pleased with the results of this well. The discovery will be evaluated as a potential addition to the Yggdrasil development. We see further upside potential around Yggdrasil and, in collaboration with our partners, will continue active exploration in the area,” says Per Øyvind Seljebotn, SVP Exploration & Reservoir Development in Aker BP.

The discovery is located within production licences 873 and 442. In licence 873, the partnership consists of Aker BP (operator, 47.7% interest), Equinor (40% interest) and PGNiG Upstream Norway (12.3% interest). In licence 442, the partnership comprises Aker BP (operator, 87.7% interest) and PGNiG Upstream Norway (12.3% interest).
