    Status
    The field was shut down in 2001 and the facility was removed in 2002. Frøy is being considered redeveloped as part of the development project NOA (North of Alvheim). PDO for the NOA-project is expected in 2022.

    Development
    Frøy is a field in the central part of the North Sea, 22 kilometres northeast of the Heimdal field. The water depth is 120 metres. Frøy was discovered in 1987, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 1992. The field was developed with a wellhead facility with 15 well slots. Production started in 1995.
    25.04.2019
    Reservoir
    Frøy produced oil from Jurassic sandstone in the Brent Group at a depth of 3,200-3,300 metres.
    25.04.2019
    Recovery
    The field was produced by pressure support from water injection.
    16.03.2018
    Transport
    The well stream was transported by pipeline to the Frigg field for treatment and metering, and transported further via pipeline to the terminal of the Shell-Esso Gas and Liquids (SEGAL) system at St Fergus in the UK.
