Denmark: Dong Energy, Bayerngas to Jointly Develop Hejre Field

DONG Energy and Bayerngas have decided to develop the Hejre field in the Danish North Sea. DONG Energy is the operator and has a 60 per cent stake in the field. Bayerngas owns 40 per cent. The total investment in the development of the Hejre field is DKK 12.1 billion (USD 2.2 billion). DONG Energy’s share is DKK 7.3 billion (USD 1.3 billion).

 ”Hejre will be the largest development in the Danish part of the North Sea for many years and will benefit all of the supply industry as well as Danish society. We expect that the development will create around 500 new permanent jobs and make a considerable contribution to Denmark’s continued position as self-sufficient in oil and gas”, states Anders Eldrup, CEO in DONG Energy.

Furthermore DONG Energy on its own invests approx. DKK 2 billion (USD 361 million)  in the development of the oil terminal in Fredericia in Denmark, which will be processing the oil from the Hejre field amongst other fields. The total investment from DONG Energy will therefore be DKK 9.2 billion.

DONG Energy estimates the total reserves of the Hejre field at approx. 170 million barrels of oil equivalents – DONG Energy’s share is approx. 100 million barrels – and expects first oil and gas from late 2015.

The development comprises a production platform, drilling of production wells and new pipelines that will be tied into existing North Sea pipelines. From here, the oil and gas from Hejre will be transported to mainland Denmark.
