Apache starts up Garten offshore UK
05 December, 2018
Apache Corporation has started production at its Garten development on Block 9/18a Area-W in the UK North Sea.
The discovery, located 6km south of the Beryl Alpha platform, was first drilled in March 2018.
Three zones were encountered at the discovery, including a downthrown structural closure with 778 feet of net oil pay in stacked, high-quality, Jurassic-aged sandstone reservoirs.
Recoverable reserves at the discovery are estimated to exceed 10m barrels of light oil plus associated natural gas.
