The Fram Vest field is situated in block 35/11 about 22 km north of Troll C. The field is connected to Troll C via a 13" production line, a 12" gas injection line and a control line. All of these lines are tied into Troll C.
The subsea installations on Fram Vest are designed and installed to be diver-less. All maintenance will be carried out with the aid of ROVs or specially built tool systems operated from a drilling rig or intervention vessel.
The plan is to have full, regular production underway starting from 1 October 2003.
