Maersk Oil is the main operator of the Danish North Sea oil fields. In 2011 Maersk Oil entered its first cross-border tie-in, which enables gas and condensate from Norwegian waters to be taken to Maersk Oil’s Harald platform for processing before exporting onwards.

Increasing efficiency of operations

The Harald processing platform lies on the northern brink of Maersk Oil’s North Sea operations in Danish waters. Trym, in Norwegian waters and operated by a joint venture of DONG Energy E&P and Bayerngas, is just 6 km away. The Trym field was developed as a subsea completion with two production wells. Well fluids are exported to the Harald facilities for processing via a multiphase pipeline.

For the Trym consortium, the use of Maersk Oil’s infrastructure allows it to develop the field quickly without building its own platform, which is a time-consuming and costly affair.

As oil and gas output declines, making infrastructure available for alternative use was seen by Maersk Oil as one way of rationalising its operations in the Danish North Sea. The goal is to increase efficiency, prolong production and extend the life of its fields. It also opens up the door for future tie-ins within Danish waters and across borders.

35 years of North Sea experience makes a difference

It is the first time Maersk Oil acts as supplier for another oil company. Ramboll was chosen as consultant on this job because of our unique and comprehensive offshore North Sea experience, which has been developed and refined over the past 35 years. Further Ramboll had the specific competences necessary to complete the project within the given time. Our scope of work comprised conceptual as well as detailed design including installation and/or modification of a number of major items.
