E.On group starts up UK North Sea Huntington field

A group led by E.On Ruhrgas UK E&P Ltd. has started oil production from Huntington field on Block 22/14b in the UK Central North sea 140 miles northeast of Aberdeen, Scotland.

E.on has estimated ultimate recovery from the £320 million project at 30 million boe, 90% oil, from the Paleocene Forties reservoir. Discovered in 2007, Huntington is in 90 m of water (OGJ Online, Mar. 31, 2011).

After an initial ramp-up period, the field is expected to produce 25,000-30,000 b/d of oil equivalent.

The Huntington development utilizes the Voyageur Spirit floating production, storage and offloading vessel modified to meet the field requirements, a six-well subsea drilling template, and a 12-km gas pipeline connected to the BP CATS transportation system.

Huntington partners are E.On 25%, Premier Oil PLC 40%, Noreco 20%, and Iona Energy 15%.
