Map of oil and gas fields

This list of oil and gas fields of the North Sea contains links to oil and natural gas reservoirs beneath the North Sea. In terms of the oil industry, "North Sea oil" often refers to a larger geographical set, including areas such as the Norwegian Sea and the UK "Atlantic Margin" (west of Shetland) which are not, strictly speaking, part of the North Sea. The UK list includes facilities in the Irish Sea.

Offshore[edit]

The UK continental shelf (UKCS) comprises six geographical and geological oil, gas and condensate regions: Southern North Sea (principally gas fields); Central North Sea (oil, condensate and gas fields); Moray Firth (oil and associated gas fields); Northern North Sea (oil and associated gas fields); West of Shetland (oil and associated gas); and the Irish Sea/Liverpool Bay (oil and gas). The fields and installations in the following list are allocated to regions corresponding to the Oil and Gas Authority's listings.[4]

Installation Identification

Oil and gas field names follow themes chosen by the companies who originally developed them.[5] An offshore installation on the UK Continental Shelf may comprise a single integrated platform or two or more bridge-linked platforms. Installations are identified by a large black-on-yellow sign on the installation. This may give the name of the original or current owner or operator, the field name, and a set of numbers and letters, e.g. Shell/Esso Leman 49/26A. The numbers identify the Quadrant and Block where the installation is located, e.g. 49/26 is in Quadrant 49 Block 26.[6] The first letter is a sequential letter (A, B, C, D, etc.) identifying each installation within a field. For installations in the Southern North Sea the second and subsequent letters may designate a platform's function, e.g. the Leman 49/26A complex comprises four bridge-linked platforms 49/26AP (Production), 49/26AD1 (Drilling 1), 49/26AD2 (Drilling 2), and 49/26AK (Compression). Common designations are:

Letter(s) Platform function
A Accommodation
BLP Bridge Linked Platform
C Compression
CPP Central Processing/Production Platform
D Drilling (see note)
FTP Field Terminal Platform
H Hotel accommodation
K Compression
LQ Living Quarters
M Manifold, Main, Metering
P Production, Processing
Q Living Quarters
PUQ Production Utilities Quarters
R Riser, Reception
T Terminal
U Utilities
W Wellhead
WPP Wellhead Protection Platform
X Miscellaneous, e.g. as Low pressure compression, Reception.

Note: Drilling refers to the original function of the platform to support well drilling operations. No Southern North Sea installation has permanent drilling facilities.

On some installations the letters simply provide a unique two letter identity, e.g.Tethys TN, Viscount VO.

Southern North Sea gas fields[edit]

The Southern North Sea (SNS) comprises gas (plus associated condensate) fields. Themed field names comprise groups of fields that are geographically, operationally or commercially linked. Names are based on:

  • Geographical location (Leman, Sole Pit, etc)
  • Personal names (e.g. Audrey, Sean)
  • ‘Lost’ east coast villages (Ravenspurn, Newsham, etc)
  • Arthurian legend (e.g. Camelot, Excalibur, Guinevere)
  • Planets and moons (Jupiter, Ganymede, etc.)
  • Gemstones (Amethyst, Topaz)
  • Scientists and inventors (e.g. Murdoch, Davy)
  • Rivers (Tyne, Waveney, etc)
  • Sailing vessels (e.g. Ketch, Schooner)
  • Aircraft (Vulcan, Valliant, Victor, etc)

A full listing of UK Southern North Sea gas fields is given in the table below.

The SNS fields are serviced from Easington, Lowestoft, Hartlepool, Yarmouth, Skegness, Norwich airport and Humberside airport.[6][7][8][9][10][11]

Irish Sea gas/oil fields[edit]

These UK fields are located in two main areas of the eastern Irish Sea: Morecambe Bay and Liverpool Bay. Although not part of the North Sea they are on the UK Continental Shelf. The fields are serviced from Liverpool, Blackpool and Morecambe.

Germany[edit]

Onshore[edit]

  • Wietze near Hanover, discovered in 1859
  • The Schoenebeek field of the Netherlands extends across the border

Offshore[edit]

  • Mittelplate, approx. 2 Mio m³/a of crude oil production
  • A6/B4, gas field 300 km in the North Sea, gas transport via the NOGAT pipeline

Denmark[edit]

Onshore[edit]

No onshore developments

Offshore[edit]

Offshore development is abundant. Of the 19 fields, 15 are operated by Maersk Oil and Gas[16] as part of the Dansk Undergrunds Consortium,[17] with the remaining 4 operated by DONG Energy (3) and Hess (1).[18]

Norway[edit]

Onshore[edit]

No onshore developments - (Oslo Graben oil seeps??)

Offshore[edit]

Serviced from Stavanger, Bergen, Kristiansund

Central North Sea

Northern North Sea

[20]

Associated - not North Sea

Ireland (includes Northern Ireland)[edit]

Onshore[edit]

  • Larne - tiny prospect under the basalts
  • Other small prospects, and significant coal-bed methane

Offshore[edit]

  • Kinsale Head - gas development off the coast of Cork, exhausted and now proposed for use as carbon dioxide or natural gas storage
  • Corrib gas field - about to start production to a controversial onshore processing plant
  • Inishbeg - prospect announced to the NW of Donegal; due to be drilled August 2006
  • Barryroe - oil and gas discovery south of Cork; appraisal results formally announced March 2012
  • Dunquin - off Irish west coast; owned by ExxonMobil, Repsol, Providence and Sosina; drilling was to start in 2013 on a potentially large field[21]
  • Spanish Point - field due for exploration in 2013, due north of Dunquin, off County Clare on the Irish West Coast[22]
  • Dalkey Island - Irish Sea prospect

Faroes[edit]

Offshore[edit]

  • Various blocks licensed for exploration, several discoveries not yet developed[citation needed]

Iceland[edit]

Offshore[edit]

  • Nothing published, but the idea is not inconceivable on the ridges extending towards Iceland from the Faroes and the East Greenland Coast

East Greenland[edit]

Onshore[edit]

  • No prospects reported, though sediments analogous to the Mesozoic and Caenozoic deposits of the North Sea are known, so there is appreciable interest. Development would be formidably difficult, technically, logistically and politically.

Offshore[edit]

  • A recent conference on hydrocarbon prospects in arctic Russia (Geological Society, London; February 2006) had several speakers mention major gas prospectivity on the East Greenland coast, but they cited no sources. A conference volume was due towards the end of 2006, which may elaborate.

Barents Sea[edit]

Onshore[edit]

  • No significant prospects or potential

Offshore[edit]

  • Significant exploration, appraisal and development. Major discoveries are the Snøhvit gasfield, operated by Statoil in the Norwegian sector and the Stokhmanovskoye gasfield planned to be operated by Gazprom in the Russian sector.
