Norwegian firm Aker BP has started production from the Frosk field in the Alvheim area in the Norwegian North Sea.
Located in the production licences 340 and 869 in the central part of the North Sea, the Frosk field is situated approximately 25km southwest of the Alvheim Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) unit.
The field is tied back to the Alvheim FPSO unit via the existing Bøyla and Alvheim subsea infrastructure.
As per the estimates, the Frosk project holds approximately ten million barrels of oil equivalent (Mmboe) in recoverable resources.
Aker BP CEO Karl Johnny Hersvik said: “The Frosk project has been delivered with high quality, on time, and within budget by Aker BP’s project team in close cooperation with our suppliers.
“Frosk is also an excellent illustration of how we can increase the value of our existing fields through higher production and lifetime extensions, as well as reduced unit costs and emissions intensity.”

The Frosk field marks the first of three new subsea tie-back projects to the Alvheim FPSO vessel. The other projects, the Kobra East & Gekko, and Tyrving fields, are planned to be commissioned in early 2024 and in 2025, respectively.
In a press statement, Aker BP said: “The Alvheim area is among the most efficient assets on the Norwegian continental shelf, and the resource base has multiplied since start-up.”
Aker BP operates the Frosk field in partnership with Vår Energi.
Under the contract, TecnipFMC is responsible for the tie back of three fields, named Symra, Solveig Phase 2, and Troldhaugen, to the existing Edvard Grieg and Ivar Aasen production platforms.
