More information:

Bøyla is an oil field located in block 24/9 in the northern North Sea, approximately 28 kilometres south of the Alvheim field. The field was discovered in October 2009 and the plan for development was approved in October 2012. The water depth at the Bøyla field is 120 metres.

Bøyla was developed as a fast track subsea development with use of standard technology tied back to the Alvheim FPSO. The development concept includes two producers and one water injector tied back to a manifold linked via pipe-in-pipe flowlines to the Kneler A manifold. The Alvheim FPSO required limited modifications to receive and process the Bøyla production. Oil is exported by shuttle tankers and rich gas is transported via SAGE to St. Fergus in the UK. The Bøyla development was the seventh subsea tie-back to the Alvheim FPSO vessel.

Production on Bøyla started in January 2015 and the development cost has been approx. NOK 5 billion.

The field is estimated to contain gross 2P reserves of 23 mmboe, and the peak production is approx. 4,000 boepd net to Core Energy.
