Background

The Bauge field was discovered in 2013. A plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in June 2017. According to the field's operator, Equinor Energy, the Bauge field development concept includes one subsea template, two oil producers and one water inject."[7]

In January 2020, Offshore Energy reported that "Bauge resources will be phased into the Njord A platform which will help increase the life of the Njord field by three years. Both projects are set to come on stream during 2020."[8]

As of February 2021, its status is listed by Norwegian Petroleum as "under development."
