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 672, granted a consent to Phillips Petroleum Company UK Ltd to the getting of petroleum and the construction of installations in relation to the development of the Jade gas/liquid phase field. The consent for the Jade field took effect from 4 January 2000 and shall last until 31 December 2006 .

The Jade development lies in Block 30/2c, 270 km from the UK coast and 15 km from the UK/Norway median line, in the Central North Sea.

Phillips propose to develop the Jade reservoir to commence production in 2001. The development will involve the completion of well 30/2c-4 and the drilling of up to 4 additional wells. Water based mud will be used for the top sections of all wells, and low toxicity oil-based muds (LTOBMs) for the lower sections. Disposal of LTOBMs will be either by annular reinjection or by transportation to shore. There will be no extended well testing. The Jade platform will be a normally unattended installation tied back to the Judy platform via a 16 ", 17 km pipeline. Produced gas will be exported to Teeside through the CATS system, via the existing Judy connecting pipeline.

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.
