Vega field officially openedThe Vega field in the North Sea was officially opened during a ceremony in Bergen on 17 March. The subsea field adds important natural gas and condensate to Statoil's production on the Norwegian continental shelf.

Regardless of a challenging development, the partners on the Vega field have completed the development project on time and within budget.

"Our success is thanks to capable and enthusiastic employees, and competent suppliers and partners. Good cooperation with regional and central authorities has also been essential," says Øystein Michelsen, Statoil's executive vice president for Development and Production Norway.
