Equinor has made an oil discovery estimated to hold up to 62 million barrels of crude off the coast of Norway, the energy major said on Nov. 1.

The discovery, just north of the Tyrihans Field and west of the Kristin development in the Norwegian Sea, was the state-controlled firm's sixth find in domestic waters this year, it said.

Equinor seeks to map out resources close to oil and gas fields that are already in operation, thus speeding up development time and maximizing the value of its investments.
