Repsol and its partners have achieved first oil from the YME field in the Egersund Basin, approximately 130 km from the Norwegian coastline. Achievement of first oil is a true testament to the lean operations of the Yme New Development project, made possible through the use of new technology and innovation, building a profitable project even when faced with the unprecedent challenges during the Covid-19 pandemic. 


Repsol Norge AS has, as operator of the Yme field and on behalf of the Yme license, entered into an agreement to take over the day-to-day operations of the jack-up rig Mærsk Inspirer from Maersk Drilling (MD).  According to the agreement, MD will sell Mærsk Inspirer to Havila Sirius AS and the Yme licensees will lease the rig from Havila Sirius AS under a bareboat charter. The transaction is subject to certain conditions being satisfied, including relevant authorities’ approval.
