Alluvial fan

A pattern of sedimentary deposit frequently laid down by streams or rivers where they spread out into plains.Alluvial fans from past geological eras are potential reservoir structures.

AlphaPRIME™

Alpha Thames’ incremental field development solution for the production and processing of subseahydrocarbons. It provides field control from reservoir to host, and can evolve to meet all future requirements.

AlphaCPU™

The AlphaCPU™ (Central Processing Unit) is a diverless, seabed, modular, processing system for the productionof hydrocarbons, which forms the heart of an AlphaPRIME™ developed field. It comprises a foundation system,KeyMAN™ and a minimum of two System-Modules™. It utilises all-electric power and control for maximumefficiency and reliability. This ensures its suitability for all field developments including deepwater applicationsand those requiring long tie-backs.

AMV

Annulus master valve

Anion

A negatively charged ion; an ion that is attracted to the anode during electrolysis. Compare cation.

Annular space

The ring-shaped cavity between two concentric tubes OR the space around a pipe in a wellbore, the outer wallof which may be the wall of either the borehole or the casing; sometimes termed the annulus.
