AKER BP BRINGS FROSK FIELD ON STREAM IN THE NORWEGIAN NORTH SEA
Aker BP announced that the Frosk field development in the Alvheim area has been successfully completed and production has started on schedule and within budget, only 18 months after the Plan for Development and Operation (PDO) was submitted. Frosk is operated by Aker BP, with Vår Energi as partner.
The Frosk field is tied back to Alvheim FPSO in the North Sea via existing subsea infrastructure and utilises existing capacity in the processing facilities with only a marginal increase in power consumption and CO2 emissions.
The Frosk project has been delivered within the initial investment estimate of around NOK 2 billion (appr. USD 230 million). Recoverable reserves in Frosk are estimated at around 10 million barrels of oil equivalents (mmboe).
The Alvheim area is among the most efficient assets on the Norwegian continental shelf, and the resource base has multiplied since start-up. This is the result of targeted exploration and reservoir development, technological innovation and not least the unique collaboration with key suppliers under Aker BP’s alliance model.
Frosk is the first of three new subsea tie-back projects to the Alvheim FPSO, with Kobra East & Gekko planned to come on stream early 2024 and Tyrving expected on stream in 2025.
