Culzean field starts production

Unread post by escveritas » Wed Jul 03, 2019 12:35 am

Production has begun from Culzean gas condensate field in the Central Graben area of the UK North Sea. Development by Total SA and partners involved the drilling of six wells and construction of three bridge-linked platforms and a floating storage and offloading unit.

The field, discovered in 2008 by Maersk Oil, is in 88 m of water on Block 22/25a about 230 km off Aberdeen.

Plateau production will be 100,000 boe/d of gas and condensate. Gas flows into the CATS pipeline. Shuttle tankers carry condensate away from the FSO.

Total, which bought Maersk Oil in 2018, operates Culzean with a 49.99% interest. Other interests are BP, 32%, and JX Nippon, 18.01%.
