BP starts production at Valhall

BP has kicked off output at its Valhall field in the Norwegian North Sea, which is expected to ramp up to producer around 65,000 barrels of oil equivalent a day in the second half of 2013. “It is one of BP’s most complex field expansion developments and gives Valhall a further 40-year design life with the capacity to handle 120,000 barrels of oil and 143m cubic feet of gas per day,” BP chief executive Bob Dudley said yesterday.
