- Production Volume:
- Kristin is a gas condensate field in the Norwegian Sea. The field is developed with four subsea templates tied back to a semi-submersible facility for processing, Kristin Semi. The water depth in the area is about 370 metres.
- Provision has been made for tie-in and processing of other deposits in the Kristin area.
- Tyrihans Oil And Gas Field is tied back to Kristin and started production in 2009.
- The Maria Oil Field is also to be tied back to Kristen
- The wellstream is processed at Kristin and the gas is transported in a pipeline to Åsgard Transport and further to Karsto Gas Processing Plant.
- Light oil is transferred to Åsgard for storage and export. Condensate from Kristin is sold as oil (Halten Blend).

- 1996 - Kristin Gas And Condensate Field Discovered
- 2002 - Dragados Offshore awarded contract for Manifold/Riser Balcony Module and the Flare Tower
- 2005 - The Kristin gas and condensate field came on stream
- 2009 - Tyrihans Oil And Gas Field came onstream
- The reservoirs are in Jurassic sandstones of the Garn, Ile and Tofte Formations and contain gas and condensate under very high pressure and temperatures. The reservoirs lie at a depth of 4 600 metres. The reservoir quality is good, but low permeability in the Garn Formation and flow barriers in the Ile and Tofte Formations contribute to a rapid decline in reservoir pressure during production.
