Production at the Yme field is expected in the first half of 2020.

Repsol said that Norwegian suppliers will account for 70% of the total investment.

Repsol is acting as operator of and on behalf of the partners in a consortium for the project, where it holds a 55% stake. Other partners include Lotos Exploration and Production Norge AS with a 20% stake, OKEA AS with 15% and KUFPEC Norway AS with 10%.

This item was corrected at 11:44 a.m. ET. The original headline incorrectly stated that Repsol was making the investment on its own.

Repsol and partners are investing about $950 million in the Yme field in Norway. "Repsol to Invest $950 Million in Norwegian Field," at 1617 GMT, misstated who was making the investment in the headline. Repsol isn't making the investment on its own.
