Spirit Energy confirms York gas field project extension

20 Apr 2021

The Spirit Energy-owned York gas field has been given another three years of life following a successful life extension project.

The southern North Sea field achieved first gas from the recent campaign on 18 April. The project was sanctioned by Spirit in May 2020.

Girish Kabra, Spirit Energy’s Director for North Sea operated assets, said: “First gas from the project is a result of hard work and determination of the joint team of Spirit Energy, Perenco, Centrica Storage Limited and our supply chain partners. It is good to see York producing safely again after a short pause for the life extension project.”

The project extends the life of an important North Sea field for Spirit, which has produced 45bn cubic feet of gas over the past eight years and a further 18bn cubic feet is expected thanks to the recent investment.

Located approximately 34km from the north east Yorkshire coastline, York started production in 2013 and was planned to produce until 2020. Production is now extended until 2023/24.
