Pursuant to Regulation 5(8) of the above Regulations, the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry gives notice that, being content that the requirements of the above Regulations have been satisfied, he has pursuant to Licence P.064 granted a consent to BP Exploration Operating Company Limited to the getting of petroleum and the construction of installations in relation to the development of the North Davy gas field. The consent for the North Davy field took effect from 9 July 2001.

The proposed project comprises the development of a gas reserve in the North Davy field, made possible through the availability of capacity on the Davy and Inde collection, processing and transmission system. The project comprises a single well tied back through an 8 inch pipeline to the normally unmanned Davy platform in the southern North Sea. Gas is then transmitted to the Inde platform through an existing 43 km subsea pipeline.

The scope of the ES is as follows:

  • The installation of a remotely operated subsea wellhead at the predrilled North Davy well.
  • The installation of a 10.5 km 8 inch gas pipeline connecting the wellhead to the Davy platform.
  • Installation of a control umbilical between the Davy platform and the wellhead.
  • Minor modifications to the Davy and Inde 49/23A platforms.

The pipeline will be trenched and fully back-filled. The umbilical will be laid in a separate trench parallel to the production line. It will be back-filled by natural seabed sediment movement. Mattresses will be placed at either end of the pipeline and umbilical.

A number of minor modifications to North Davy and Inde will be required.

There were no major objections to this proposed development. No significant impacts were identified and it is unlikely to affect any potential future SAC that may be identified.

Following the provision of further information, the Secretary of State is of the view, having regard to the environmental statement prepared in respect of the project and the comments received from those consulted, that the project is not likely to have a significant effect on the environment.
