This forms a good basis for the next phases of the project.”Equinor and Rosneft have carried out test production in North Komsomolskoye field since 2018Since 2018, Equinor and Rosneft have executed test production in the field to understand the reservoir properties and lay the ground for the full field development decision.In November, Equinor and its partners ExxonMobil, Idemitsu and Neptune made an oil and gas discovery at the Echino South prospect in production licence 090 (PL 090) near the Fram field in the Norwegian North Sea.The hydrocarbon discovery was made following the drilling of the 35/11-23 wildcat well nearly 3km southwest of the Equinor-operated Fram field in the northern part of the North Sea. Using the Deepsea Atlantic drilling rig, the exploration well was drilled to a vertical depth of 2947m below sea level in a 350m of water depth.Equinor Energy holds a 45% stake in PL 090, while ExxonMobil Exploration and Production Norway is the second-largest stakeholder with 25% interest.
