‘Rapid progress’: Wintershall Dea hands in development plans for Dvalin North project offshore Norway

German operator Wintershall Dea has submitted to the authorities in Oslo its proposals for developing the Dvalin North field off northern Norway with total investment pegged at about Nkr8 billion ($805 million).

Wintershall Dea, together with partners Petoro and Sval Energi, handed in a plan for development and operation, or PDO, to Norway’s Ministry of Petroleum & Energy, on Tuesday (13 December), they said a joint statement.

The move comes amid a slew of development activity by operators off Norway and is part of Wintershall Dea’s efforts to strengthen operations there to counter-balance the negative impact Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine in February had on its business in Russia.
