Skua project sanction on the cards for BP, Zennor next year

BP murlach
Murlach will be tied-back to the ETAP production hub

BP is progressing towards a final investment decision (FID) for the redevelopment of a field in the central North Sea.

Skua originally produced between 2001 and 2005 from a single subsea well tied back to the ETAP infrastructure.

That well pumped put more than 10 million barrels of oil equivalent (boe) at rates of up to 15,000 boe per day.

Operator BP and partner Zennor Petroleum (20%), intend to bring Skua back to life again as a subsea tieback to ETAP.

An FID is expected in the first half of 2020, with first oil slated for the third quarter of 2022.

According to an update on the Oil and Gas Authority’s Pathfinder database, contracts have already been handed to Genesis for the concept development study and, more recently, to Wood for the topsides pre-FEED study.

The project will require the drilling and completion of two production wells.

Skua will also benefit from the development of the nearby Seagull project – operated by Neptune Energy – through the sharing of chemical injection pumps.
