Fossil energy – Shell
Shell has announced the start of production from the Arran gas and condensate field in the UK North Sea.
The field is located in a water depth of 85m, nearly 240 km east of Aberdeen.
Developed and operated by Shell, Arran is a 60km subsea tie-back to the Shearwater platform, with an estimated life of the development of around 12 years.
Discovered in 1985, the field is expected to produce around 100 million standard cubic feet per day of gas and 4 000 barrels per day of condensate.
