OMV’s plan for the Berling gas and condensate discovery approved by Norwegian authorities

Energy group OMV announced the approval of its Plan for Development and Operation (PDO) for the Berling gas and condensate discovery by the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy. The plan was submitted by OMV (Norge) to the Norwegian authorities on behalf of the license partners in December last year.

“Berling is one of our key natural gas development projects and is geared to increase the share of natural gas in our portfolio as outlined in OMV’s Strategy 2030,” said Berislav Gaso, Executive Vice President for Energy, OMV. “The gas and condensate volumes are expected to further strengthen Norway’s position as an important European supplier of natural gas.”

The Berling production license area is located about 175 kilometres from Kristiansund in the Northwestern part of Norway, in a mature oil and gas province with established infrastructure. The closest hub is the Equinor-operated Åsgard B platform approximately 23 kilometres to the south-east.

Three production wells will be drilled at the Berling field starting in the third quarter of 2026 with expected first gas and condensate production in 2028. The estimated gross recoverable resources are expected to be around a total of 45 million barrels of oil equivalent (boe).
