Shell begins production from Arran field in UK North Sea

25 Oct 2021

Royal Dutch Shell has announced the start of production from the Arran gas and condensate field in the UK North Sea

Located nearly 240km east of Aberdeen, the field is located in a water depth of 85m.

Developed and operated by Shell, Arran is a 60km subsea tie-back to the Shearwater platform, with an estimated life of the development of around 12 years.

Discovered in 1985, the field is expected to produce around 100m standard cubic feet per day of gas and 4,000 barrels per day of condensate.

Connected to Scottish petrochemical facilities, the Arran gas and condensate field is part of the Shearwater gas hub.

The field lies in blocks 23/11a, 23/16b and 23/16C in production licences P359, P1051 and P1720 in the Central North Sea, UK.

The field development plan (FDP) for Arran was submitted to the Oil & Gas Authority (OGA) in September 2018. The field development included drilling of four new development wells.
