In 2021, DNO had diversified production across 10 fields in the North Sea of which eight are in Norway and two in the UK. Net production averaged 12,942 boepd during 2021 (17,352 boepd in 2020), of which 12,469 boepd were attributable to Norway and 473 boepd to the UK (16,465 boepd and 887 boepd in 2020).
In 2021, North Sea production was down compared to 2020 due to natural decline and planned maintenance.
DNO maintained a high activity level drilling seven development wells and five exploration wells in Norway during the year. This resulted in four discoveries, of which two likely commercial, notably Røver Nord and the deeper Åre formation of the Bergknapp discovery made in 2020.
Several field development projects in Norway are scheduled for yearend 2022 investment decisions, supporting the Company’s North Sea growth ambitions. DNO-operated plugging and abandonment operations on the Oselvar field in Norway and Ketch field in the UK were completed during 2021.
In January 2022, the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary DNO Norge AS was awarded participation in 10 exploration licenses, of which three are operatorships, under Norway's Awards in Predefined Areas (APA) 2021 licensing round.
