The Njord field has been developed with a floating steel platform, Njord A, which has an integrated deck with drilling and processing facilities, as well as living quarters. From 2016 to 2022 the field will be shut down due to extensive upgrades of the platform Njord A and the storage vessel Njord Bravo.
The Njord field was in production from 1997 to 2016. The platform and the storage vessel is now brought to shore for an extensive upgrade. The work will take place from 2016 to 2022, and it will make the field ready to produce until 2040.
As part of the upgrade, the platform will be prepared to bring the nearby fields Bauge and Fenja on stream.
