Photo: Exploration Revived Award 2019 was given to AkerBP for the Frosk oil discovery. Øyvind Husby, VP Exploration North Sea licenses, accepted the award on behalf of AkerBP.
Frosk is an excellent example of success from integrated G&G work in a mature area. Aker BP’s geoscientists have persistently matured this under-explored play concept on the NCS by means of producing field analogues as well as improved imaging technology and demonstrated a significant upside potential. Frosk, a near Alvheim discovery targeting Paleocene sands injected into Eocene strata has implications for a much larger area on the NCS including the UKCS. Immediately after the discovery was made, the operator announced an aggressive exploration and appraisal campaign to rapidly unlock the area potential. The Frosk discovery has contributed to an increased interest for the injectite play. Earlier this year, the first follow-up success, the Froskelår discovery, was announced.
Congratulation to the AkerBP team!
