Fossil Energy – Murlach Field
BP has announced plans to develop a North Sea oil and gas field 126 miles east of Aberdeen.
Developed as a subsea tieback – connecting the field to an existing installation – the field could be producing oil and gas by 2025.
The Murlach field contains approximately 20 million barrels of recoverable oil with some associated gas, approximately 5-10 billion cubic feet.
The energy giant said oil would be exported via the Forties Pipeline System to Grangemouth, while gas would be delivered to Teesside via the CATS systems.
