Target gas output in 2020 from the fields attributable to the interests acquired from Shell represents 70% of PUN’s current production volume in Norway, resulting in an immediate increase of the company’s gas production. In 2021 production is expected to be nearly 30% above the previous forecast, having grown by almost a half compared with PUN’s gas output in 2019. According PGNiG’s estimates, in 2023–2028 (after the Baltic Pipe launch), the two fields will deliver about 0.2 bcm of gas/year to the company.
Gas produced from the fields will be sent to Poland after the Baltic Pipe link is launched.
