French energy giant Total said on Thursday it was launching development of the Hild gas and oil field in the Norwegian North Sea with investment of $4.2 billion.

Total holds a 51 percent stake in the Hild field that has estimated reserves of 190 million barrels of oil equivalent, with production set for the end of 2016 and to reach a peak of 100,000 barrels per day.

Processed gas would be shipped to Britain via pipeline and oil shipped off by tankers.

Norway's offshore energy development company owns a 30 percent stake and state-owned oil and gas company Statoil has a 19 percent share.

The project still awaits final clearance by the Norwegian authorities.
