20 December 1999

BP Amoco and its co-venturers - BG, Amerada Hess, Phillips Petroleum, TotalFina and Agip UK - are proceeding with an in-field development programme costing about £71 million. The project encompasses Lomond in block 23/21, 233 km east of Aberdeen and South Everest principally in blocks 22/9 and 22/10a, 233 km east north east of Aberdeen.

The second phase of Lomond development will be carried out by drilling two wells starting in December 1999 from the Lomond platform, accessing 42 billion cu feet of gas and 1.2 million barrels of liquids. Production from the new wells is expected early in 2000.

South Everest will be developed with two wells and a 7.1 km tie back to the North Everest platform. Drilling is due to start in April 2000. These wells will access 113 billion cu feet of gas and 5.1 million barrels of liquids from the Everest field complex. Production is expected in the third quarter of 2000.

Drilling will be carried out by the new-build Santa Fe Galaxy III heavy duty jack up rig which will be on a long term contract to BP Amoco from December 1999.

Gas from the two fields is exported via the CATS pipeline to Teesside, and liquids via the Forties Pipeline system to Grangemouth.

Contracts have been awarded for:

  • Subsea trees - ABB Vetco Gray
  • Well Placement - Baker Hughes Intec
  • Fluids - Baker Hughes Intec
  • Cementing - Halliburton
  • Subsea Controls and Umbilical - Kvaerner Oilfield products
  • Flexible Flowline - NKT Flexibles
  • Well Management - Schlumberger Dowell Camco
  • Subsea construction - Stolt Comex Seaway
  • Topsides design and Engineering - Wood Group Engineering

Notes:
Original reserves of Everest were 44 million barrels of liquids and 770 billion cubic feet of gas. Remaining recoverable reserves are 28 million barrels condensate and 450 billion cubic feet sales gas. The cost of developing the Everest field was £312 million and it started production in 1993. Field partners are:

  • BP Amoco (operator) 21.14 per cent
  • BG 57.79 per cent
  • Amerada Hess 18.67 per cent
  • Phillips Petroleum 1.01 per cent
  • TotalFina 0.87 per cent
  • Agip UK 0.52 per cent

Original reserves of the Lomond field were 18 million barrels of condensate and 654 billion cubic feet of gas. Remaining recoverable reserves are 8 million barrels condensate and 358 billion cubic feet sales gas. The cost of developing the field was £321 million and it started production in 1993.

The Lomond field partners are:

  • BP Amoco (operator) 22.22 per cent
  • BG 61.11 per cent
  • Amerada Hess 16.67 per cent
