Equinor has a 28.85 percent interest. We were the operator for the Vilje field originally, but transferred the operatorship to Marathon Oil Norge as of 1 October 2012 and the field is now operated by Aker BP.
The field development concept includes two subsea templates and two production wells. Oil from Vilje is piped in a new 19-kilometre pipeline to the Alvheim FPSO, which is operated by Aker BP.
The oil from Vilje is brought up naturally without any form of stimulation. The field is connected to a giant water zone and water injection will therefore not be required.
Operator: Aker BP
Location: Block 25/4
Production start: August 2008
