Denmark Lowers 2023 Gas Output Forecast by 4%

The Danish Energy Agency (DEA) has cut its forecast for Denmark's commercial gas production in 2024 by 4% to 3bn m3, it said on September 2.

Output is expected to come to 1.1bn m3 in 2020, down from around 3bn m3 last year, due to the shutdown in September 2019 of the country's largest gas field Tyra. The Total-operated field's platforms have been sinking over the years, and it is now undergoing a $3.4bn redevelopment programme involving the installation of new, elevated topsides.

Danish production should rebound in 2022 when Tyra is brought back on stream. Output at the field was as high as 11.5bn m3 in 2005, but steadily fell over the subsequent years. Its closure made Denmark a net importer of gas.
