The greater Alvheim area is located in the central part of the North Sea, close to the UK sector. It consist of the main field Alvheim, and the satellite fields Bøyla, Vilje and Volund. The volumes are being produced via the Alvheim FPSOFloating production, storage and offloading. Flytende produksjonsenhet, med lagring og lossing.Floating production, storage and offloading unit.
Production from the Alvheim field started in 2008. The water depth in the area is between 120 and 130 metres.
The main field Alvheim consists of the Kneler, Boa, Kamelon, East Kamelon structures, and the Viper-Kobra and Gekko discoveries.
Viper- Kobra came on stream during Q4, 2016. Bøyla, Vilje and Volund are satellites which are smaller discoveries and tied into the Alvheim FPSOFloating production, storage and offloading unit.
Alvheim had been producing beyond expectations and there has been a gradual increase in the resources, mainly as a result of infill drilling. Alvheim can be an oil hub for future discoveries in the area.
Oil is transported from the field with shuttle tanker, and associated gas is exported through the Scottish Area Gas Evacuation (SAGE) system to St Fergus in Scotland.
