Lysaker – Aker BP is about to complete drilling of the Frosk exploration well 24/9-12 located near Alvheim in the North Sea. The well has proved oil. Preliminary analysis indicate a discovery size of 30-60 million barrels of oil equivalents (mmboe), which is significantly more than the company’s pre-drill estimates of 3-21 mmboe. The discovery also has a positive impact on the assessment of further exploration potential in the area.

Frosk is located in PL340, which also contains the Bøyla field. Bøyla has been producing oil since 2015 through a subsea installation tied back to the Alvheim floating production, storage and offloading unit.
