The Valemon field is one of Equinor’s stand-alone development projects on the Norwegian continental shelf. Containing about 192 million barrels of oil equivalent the field will be producing through a separate platform.
Due to its fragmented high-pressure, high-temperature qualities, Valemon is a complex reservoir.
The gas from Valemon will be sent through the existing pipeline between Huldra and Heimdal, which is a hub for further transportation to the European gas markets.
The condensate will be piped to Kvitebjørn for stabilisation and from there to the Mongstad refinery near Bergen. A submarine cable will supply Valemon with electricity from Kvitebjørn.
- A gas and condensate field between Kvitebjørn and Gullfaks Sør in the North Sea, about 160 kilometres west of Bergen.
- Unmanned fixed steel platform with separation facilities for gas, condensate and water.
- The field is tied in to existing infrastructure through subsea pipelines
- The plan for development and operation (PDO) for the Valemon field was approved by the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy in June 2011. The production started in January 2015.
