The Alba field is located in the Central North Sea and lies in a shallow Eocene reservoir above the Britannia gas condensate field.
The field was discovered in 1984 and was developed via the Alba Northern Platform (ANP) with additional subsea facilities in the south. Production is offloaded from the Floating Storage Unit (FSU) via shuttle tankers. First production was achieved in January 1994.
The field lies at a depth of 6,200ft and contains moderately heavy 19⁰API oil. There are a total of 33 production wells supported by water injection from 8 injector wells.
Additional development opportunities exist through infill drilling.
