PRODUCTION FROM THE FIELD

Development

Alve is a field in the Norwegian Sea, 16 kilometres southwest of the Norne field. The water depth is 370 metres. Alve was discovered in 1990, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 2007. The development concept is a standard subsea template with four well slots and three production wells. Alve is tied to the Norne production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO) by a pipeline. Production started in 2009.

Reservoir

Alve produces oil and gas from sandstone of Early and Middle Jurassic age in the Tilje, Not and Garn Formations. The reservoir lies at a depth of 3,600 metres and has moderate to good quality.

Recovery

The field is produced by pressure depletion.

Transport

The oil is offloaded from the Norne FPSO and the gas is transported via the Norne pipeline to the Åsgard Transport System (ÅTS) and further to the Kårstø terminal for export.

Status

Production from Alve is constrained by the commercial agreement with the Norne licence and the gas handling capacity on the Norne FPSO. Alve can produce above volumes reserved in the commercial agreement if there is available capacity on the Norne FPSO.
