Vale is a field in the central part of the North Sea, 16 kilometres north of the Heimdal field. The water depth is 115 metres. Vale was discovered in 1991, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 2001. The field is developed with a subsea template including one horizontal production well with a single side-track, tied-back to the Heimdal facility. Production started in 2002.
The well stream from Vale is routed to Heimdal for processing and export. Gas is transported via Vesterled to St Fergus in the UK. Condensate is transported by pipeline to the Brae field in the UK sector and further to Cruden Bay.
