Aker BP to remove emergency response vessel at Alvheim

Written by  OE Staff Monday, 30 January 2017 10:59

Aker BP has received consent from Norway’s Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) to remove the emergency response vessel at the Alvheim field.

Aker BP wants the Alvheim field to be included in the area contingency planning for the Sleipner-Utsira area, and has accordingly applied for consent to remove the Alvheim field's emergency response vessel. The PSA has granted Aker BP consent for removal as applied for.

Aker BP is the operator of the Alvheim field in the North Sea, close to the boundary with the UK shelf, around 260km west of Stavanger. Alvheim has been developed using a floating production unit and subsea wells. The Vilje and Volund fields are also tied back to the production unit. The oil from the fields is shipped from Alvheim by tanker and the gas is exported by pipeline to St Fergus in Scotland. Production began in 2008.
