BP group starts gas flow from UK Devenick field

A group led by BP Exploration Operating Co. Ltd. has started gas production from Devenick field in the UK Central North Sea.

Initial rate is 100 MMscfd of gas. The field is estimated to hold 430 bscf of recoverable gas and to remain on production until 2025. The UK sanctioned the project in late 2010.

Devenick gas flows through a subsea manifold through highly-insulated flowlines and high-pressure control and safety systems to Marathon’s East Brae platform 34 km to the south. From East Brae the gas continues to the UK grid via the SAGE pipeline system and the St. Fergus terminal.

Licensees in Devenick are BP 50%, Britoil PLC 38.7%, and RWE Dea UK SNS Ltd. 11.3%.
