The investment, the largest ever in the Danish part of the North Sea, will enable Tyra to continue operations for at least 25 years, and to deliver around 60,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day at its peak, Maersk Oil said.

France’s Total agreed in August to buy Maersk’s oil and gas business in a $7.45 billion deal.

The other partners in DUC are Shell, Chevron and Denmark’s state-owned Nordsofonden.
