7220/11-1 (Alta) is a discovery in the southern Barents Sea, approximately 60 kilometres south of the Johan Castberg field. The water depth is 380 metres. Alta was proven in 2014 and delineated by several wells between 2015 to 2018. The reservoir contains oil and gas in carbonates of Late Carboniferous/Early Permian age in the Gipsdalen Group, at a depth of 1,900 metres. Alternative development solutions, including tie-back to Goliat or Johan Castberg, are under evaluation.
