Dong optimistic about new fields in the North Sea

Exploration & Production, the oil and gas division in the Danish energy company Dong is optimistic when looking at the prospects of the two new fields, Blackbird and Swan, in the North Sea

It is common knowledge that a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. Nevertheless, Flemming Horn Nielsen, country manager for Dong Exploration & Production in Denmark, is optimistic about the prospect for the new fields, Blackbird and Swan, which potentially will produce oil and gas in the future. These two fields are symptomatic for the type of fields still unexploited in the Danish parts of the North Sea.

“The unexploited Danish fields are either small or extremely difficult. We have already exploited the easy ones and that is just the circumstances, we are operating under in Denmark” Flemming Horn Nielsen says. However, he does not see it as a problem; it holds great opportunities as the small and difficult fields will result in a higher amount of jobs which is a good thing in a situation as this with a high oil price.
