TotalEnergies Says Danish Tyra Gas Field Ready to Start in March

(Reuters) — TotalEnergies will restart production at Denmark's Tyra natural gas field in March this year, the company said in a statement on Monday.

Denmark's largest gas field was temporarily closed down for redevelopment in 2019, and remains on schedule for a March 31 startup, the French oil major said.

"Depending on project progress, it could be (started) earlier in March. The outcome of tests now suggests that a ramp-up to full technical capacity is expected to take four months from the restart," it added.

The redeveloped field, also called Tyra II, is expected to deliver 2.8 billion cubic meters of gas per year, TotalEnergies has previously said.

Prior to its shutdown, Tyra served as a processing and export hub for more than 90% of gas produced from the Danish sector of the North Sea.

Production was halted after the seabed had sunk several meters under Tyra's platforms during more than 30 years of production.

The project included removing and recycling of old installations, and installing new ones, including with longer platform legs.

TotalEnergies operates Tyra II on behalf of the Danish Underground Consortium (DUC), where it holds a 43.2% stake. Its partners, Oslo-listed BlueNord and Danish state-owned Nordsofonden, own 36.8% and 20% respectively.
