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 Licences P101, P729 and P 810, granted a consent to BG International Ltd to the getting of petroleum and the construction of installations in relation to the development of the Blake oilfield. The consent for the Blake field took effect from 10 January 1999 and shall last until 31 December 2015.

The Blake development lies in Blocks 13/24 and 13/29, in the outer Moray Firth, in a mature oil and gas province.

First production from Blake is scheduled for Q3 2001.The development will comprise six production wells drilled from a single drill centre, and two water injection wells, north-west and south-east of this drill centre; a production manifold, subsea wellheads, flowlines of 9.5 km and modifications to an existing FPSO vessel, the 'Bleo Holm'. The wells will be of varying depth, up to 2550 m. BG's intention is to use a water based mud for all of the wells.

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 significant effects on the environment and that adequate mitigation of the potential environmental impacts, such as they are, is presented in the environmental statement. There is thus no need for any environmental conditions to be imposed.
