Centrica Energy opts for Ula tieback for Butch discovery

Centrica Energy Norway and its partners will develop the Butch discovery in the North Sea as a subsea tie-in to the Ula field. Several options had been evaluated for the field which was discovered four years ago in the Norwegian part of the North Sea. Two options – a tie-in or standalone production jack-up solution – were assessed for the site which has estimated recoverable reserves of between 27million and 51 million barrels of oil equivalent.
