Fossil Energy – Production KEG
Aker BP has started production from the Kobra East & Gekko (KEG) project within production licence (PL) 203 in the Alvheim area of the central North Sea, Norway.
Aker BP operates the project and is partnered with ConocoPhillips Skandinavia.
Aker BP CEO Karl Johnny Hersvik said: “The KEG project execution is a fantastic example of what we can achieve with the alliance model, working as one team with our suppliers towards a common goal and with shared incentives.
“The successful start-up of production from KEG also represents a new chapter in Alvheim’s proud history of being among the most cost-efficient oil and gas producers on the Norwegian shelf with a resource base that has multiplied since start-up.”
The KEG development included the subsea tie-back of the Kobra East and Gekko fields to the Alvheim floating production and storage vessel (FPSO) in the Alvheim field in the Norwegian part of the central North Sea, near the UK border.
