Field facts

Located 120 km west of Bergen in Norway’s North Sea sector, Brage is a fixed integrated production, drilling and accommodation facility with a steel jacket. Drilling is at a seabed depth of 140 metres. Gas lift is used in most wells.

The Brage field reached peak production of 120 kboe per day in 1996. The field is now in its tail-end phase. However, improved reservoir understanding combined with an active drilling programme have extended field life.

Oil from Brage is exported via Oseberg Transport System (OTS) to the Sture terminal. Gas is exported via pipeline to the Kårstø processing plant.

First oil 1993
