Watch a timelapse of the jacket load-out for Maersk Oil’s £3billion Culzean gas project.
The field is expected to commercially produce its first hydrocarbons in 2019.
Culzean, located 145 miles east of Aberdeen in the central North Sea, was hailed as the biggest find in the UK North Sea in 10 years at the time of its discovery in 2008.
Operator Maersk has a 49.99% stake in the development, alongside BP (32%) and JX Nippon (18.01%).
They are targeting resources estimated at 250-300million barrels of oil equivalent, with peak production forecast to meet 5% of the UK’s total gas needs.
