The field was discovered by exploration well 7/7-2 in 1992. Appraisal wells 7/7-3 and 7/4-2 were drilled in 1993 and 2007, respectively. The Plan for Development and Operation (PDO) was submitted to the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy in August 2011 and approved by the Storting (Norwegian Parliament) in November of the same year. Production started in December 2014.
