Martin Linge is a new oilfield development in the North Sea. The field contains gas/condensate and oil, and was originally discovered over 30 years ago. The licensees are Total E&P Norge (operator) with 51%, Petoro 30% and Statoil 19%.

Facts about the field
    •    Located in the North Sea, 42 km west of the Oseberg field and 180 km west of Bergen
    •    Water depth 115 metres
    •    Estimated reserves are 190 million barrels of oil equivalents
    •    Production start-up is planned in the fourth quarter of 2016

"Being awarded the contract means a great deal to us, and we look forward to a good collaborative relationship," says Rune Veenstra, CEO of NorSea. "As a result of being awarded the contract, we will be starting the construction of a new, tailor-made terminal building next year, in order to accommodate Total's requirements."
