Aker BP selects name for offshore gas find in Norway

Aker BP has chosen “Ærfugl” as the field name for a gas discovery it made west of the Skarv field in the Norwegian Sea.

The company on Thursday said the name contest had been organized in collaboration with Helgelands magazine, with a total of 88 different name suggestions. Ærfugl in English means eider, or a sea duck species.

The Ministry of Petroleum and Energy approved the new name this week, subject to the partnership submitting the Plan for Development and Operation.

Aker BP plans to file the POD for the field, located about 210 kilometers from Sandnessjøen, in December this year.
