Siccar Point Energy has reached another checkpoint en route to a final investment decision (FID) for its 900 million barrel Cambo project off Shetland.
Documents on the UK Government’s website show Siccar Point handed in its environmental statement for Cambo on October 28.
It will be assessed by the Offshore Petroleum Regulator for Environment and Decommissioning, which sits within the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
Chief executive Jonathan Roger said in September that Siccar intended to make an FID “as early as possible” in 2020.
He said phase one would target around 150m barrels, with future phases “slotting in behind to keep plateau up”.
Siccar Point recently revealed it had picked Sembcorp – whose yards in Singapore were used for constructing the Culzean platforms and floating storage unit – for the Cambo FPSO build.
Cambo, about 78 miles north-west of Shetland, was discovered in 2002 and subsequently had four appraisal wells drilled up to 2012.
A final successful appraisal well was drilled and flow tested by Siccar Point in summer 2018.
Shell acquired a 30% working interest stake in the field from Siccar Point last year.
