Fossil energy – Shell UK
The Offshore Petroleum Regulator for Environment and Decommissioning (OPRED) has denied approval for the project’s environmental statement, which was submitted by the field operator BG International, an affiliate of Shell UK, in January last year.
The decision was given after examining the environmental statement submitted for the project.
So far, the reason behind the rejection of approval by the Offshore Petroleum Regulator for Environment and Decommissioning (OPRED) for the environment statement is not clear. Shell is disappointed by the decision and considers implications.
Discovered in 2005, the Jackdaw field is located approximately 275km east of Aberdeen in the central North Sea, UK. The field’s reservoir is located nearly 5,182m beneath the seabed.
