Arctic Oil & Gas 2014 Summit

This year many companies have discovered new Barents Sea fields, thus considerably boosting the expectations for the Norwegian Arctic waters and increasing IOCs’ interest in the region.

In September, Lundin announced the Gohta discovery in the Barents Sea. Containing as much as 145 million barrels of oil, the Gohta opens many drilling targets in the surrounding area.

Lukoil, in August, officially launched production at the Trebs and Titov fields in the Russian Nenets Autonomous Okrug and, in a joint venture with a Russian partner, invested more than 20 billion rubles (€450 million) in the projects.

In January 2013, Faroe Petroleum, operating in the Samson Dome, Darwin and Dazzler fields of the Norwegian Barents Sea made a significant gas discovery Faroe Petroleum. Furthermore, Faroe has also been awarded a license in the oil rich Dreki area on the Icelandic Continental Shelf that was issued early this year.
