Repsol produces about 30,000 barrels of oil equivalents per day from fields in the Norwegian shelf. It is operator for the Gyda, Blane, Yme and Rev fields and has ownership interests in several others.
In Norway, Repsol operates the Blane, Gyda, Rev and Yme fields. We also hold interests in a number of non-operated fields with associated production facilities and intrafield pipelines including Gudrun, Veslefrikk, Visund, Mikkel, Huldra and Tambar East.
The Gyda field was proven in 1980 and developed by the use of an integrated steel platform at a depth of 66 meters. The oil was transported by pipeline to Teesside via Ekofisk. The gas was piped to the Ekofisk complex and on to Emden.
In June 2017 the Norwegian authorities approved the decommission plan for the Gyda field. The decommission scope includes permanent plugging of 32 wells on the field, removal of platform and undercarriage, as well as removal of installations on the seabed. All Gyda installations should be removed by 2023.
In October 2021 the Gyda P&A work was finalised and on Saturday 27 November we turned off the lights and marked the end of habitation on Gyda. In 2022 we plan to conduct the physical removal of the installation.
Operator: Repsol Norge AS; Production start-up: 21 june 1990; Cease of Production: 29 february 2020; Licensees: Repsol Norge AS: 61%, PGNiG Upstream Norway AS: 34%, KUFPEC Norway AS: 5%
Blane is developed with a subsea facility, which is tied back to the Ula field. The subsea installation is situated on the British Continental Shelf. The ocean depth at the site is around 70 meters.

Rev was discovered in February 2001 and commenced production in January 2009. The three wells are situated on the NCS, 84 m water depth, and a buried production pipeline carries the gas and condensate to the Armada platform on the UKCS for processing. Rev currently produces periodically with about 8-10 cycles each year.
On 16th April 2018 the Rev UKCS decommissioning programme was approved by the Secretary of State. A Copy of this document along with the EIA and Comparative assessment can be found below and also on OPRED website, see link.
Gudrun is developed with a traditional steel platform resting on the seabed. The platform have capacity for partial treatment of oil and gas, before the hydrocarbons are sent via pipeline to Sleipner.
Oil and gas is transported from the Gudrun field to the Sleipner A platform. The gas is transported onward to the gas markets from Sleipner A. The oil is routed together with the Sleipner condensate to Kårstø for shipping.
Gudrun was first proven in 1975.
Visund is an oil and gas field in blocks 34/8 and 34/7, 22 kilometres north-east of the Gullfaks field in the Tampen area of the Norwegian North Sea.
It came on stream in the spring of 1999, this development embraces a floating production, drilling and quarters platform.
The subsea-completed wells on the field are tied back to the floater with flexible risers. Oil is piped to Gullfaks for storage and export. The Visund field began producing gas and exporting it to continental Europe on 7 October 2005.
The Veslefrikk field was proven in 1981 and has been developed with a well-head platform (Veslefrikk A) resting on the seabed, and a semi-subersible platform with a processing facility and accomodation quarters (Veslefrikk B). The ocean depths at the installations are 175 meters.
Mikkel lies 35 kilometres south of the Midgard deposit on Equinor’s Åsgard field in the Norwegian Sea. It has been developed with a subsea production facility tied back to the seabed installations on Midgard, which in turn form part of the Åsgard development.
The Mikkel system comprises two subsea templates with a total of three production wells.
The condensate will go in existing flowlines to the Åsgard C storage ship for export, while gas is piped through the Åsgard Transport trunkline to the Kårstø complex north of Stavanger.
Mikkel has been producing gas and condensate (light oil) since 1 August 2003.
