Tyra Field Redevelopment

From Global Energy Monitor

Reserves and CO2 Emissions

The Tyra Gas Field Redevelopment project, estimated at $3.34 billion, is aimed at extending the operational life of the Tyra gas field by at least 25 years. The project will begin producing 60,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (BOED) in July 2022 and the total potential is 129 million barrels of oil equivalents from the Sole Concession Area alone. Tyra will produce 200 million BOE. The output will be 2/3 gas, and 1/3 oil.[1]

Strategic Significance

This is the largest investment ever made in the Danish North Sea. In addition to its own production, it will enable further discoveries of the Danish North Sea, which has 3 billion barrels of oil and gas.[1]

Companies Involved

Danish Underground Consortium (DUC) comprising A.P. Moller–Mersk joint venture (31.2%), Shell (36.8%), Nordsøfonden (20%) and Chevron (12%).[1]
