Denmark has again a natural gas production at its territories to make the Scandinavian country self-sufficient, and net-exporter of the fossil fuel. French-owned TotalEnergies has restarted its production from the Tyra field in the North Sea, the company announced on 22 March 2024.

The Tyra field was locked down since 2019, but with current prices of natural gas increasing and the demand for the liquefied version LNG growing rapidly, exploitation of natural gas fields has become financially more interesting again.

Operated by a consortium

The Tyra field can produce up to 5.7 million cubic metres of natural gas a day, plus 22,000 barrels of condensate. The field is operated by a consortium of TotalEnergies (43.2%), BlueNord (36.8%) and Nordsøfonden (20%).

Renovation of Tyra gas production

Tyra is located 225 kilometres (140 miles) west of the coast of Esbjerg, and was discovered in 1968. Since 2019, when it was decommissioned, much of the old installation equipment was removed. The renovated production site is about 30% more energy efficient as the old one, according to TotalEnergies. | © 2024 Marcel Burger,
