PDO for Byrding (previously Astero) submitted Statoil and partners Wintershall, Engie and Idemitsu have submitted the Plan for Development and Operation (PDO) of the Byrding oil and gas field to the Norwegian Authorities.

The field, previously known as Astero, was discovered in 2005 and is located north of the Fram field in the North Sea. Under the preferred development solution a two-branch well will be drilled from the existing Fram H-Nord subsea template, through which oil and gas from Byrding will flow to the closely located Troll C platform.
