FACTS from Statoil.com:

Gas was proven in the Gina Krog (previously Dagny) discovery as far back as in the 1970s, just north of the Sleipner Vest field in the central part of the North Sea. In 2007, gas, condensate and oil were discovered in the Ermintrude prospect. Appraisal wells drilled on Gina Krog from 2008 to 2011 proved an oil column under the gas.

The Gina Krog partners submitted a Plan for Development and Operation (PDO) in December 2012. An impact assessment was submitted for consultation in October 2012.

The plan is to develop Gina Krog with a platform resting on the seabed, while the wells will be drilled with a mobile jack-up drilling rig. The liquid will be transported by tanker, and the gas via the Sleipner field.

The Dagny field was renamed Gina Krog in March 2013.
