Perenco Brings on New Production at Southern North Sea Hub - Merchant Navy Info - News

Drilled during Q4 2023, the C06 well will produce 20-40 billion cubic feet of gas from a previously undrilled block on the area’s Northeastern edge.

Drilled during Q4 2023, the well was constructed by the Valaris 247 rig. It had flow rates of 12 million standard cubic feet daily (2kboepd). It sent dry gas to the Cleeton Hub and onwards to the Dimlington terminal in Yorkshire.

Later this month, they will connect the well to their production network on the Ravenspurn South Charlie asset.

Combined with other current start-ups at D15 and D16 at the Ravenspurn North field. Perenco said the wells would grow its Southern North Sea production by 20% through an additional 40 million scf/d.

The general manager for Perenco UK, Jo White, said: “These positive results from Ravenspurn South. Coming shortly after the recent success at Ravenspurn North, will bring a significant increase to Perenco UK’s operated production and open the door for the further expansion of tight gas reservoirs in Perenco’s Southern North Sea assets.”
