Gas production begins from UK Jasmine field

Posted on 21 November 2013

The Jasmine field in the UK North Sea has started gas production. Jasmine was discovered in 2006 by ConocoPhillips as operator (36.5%), together with its co-venturers Eni (33%) and BG Group (30.5%), and is one of the UK’s largest discoveries in the last 10 years.

The Jasmine facility has the gross capacity to produce 140,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (BOED). In 2014, ConocoPhillips expects net production to be approximately 40,000 BOED.

“The start-up of production from Jasmine marks the delivery of yet another key 2013 milestone for BG Group. In addition to first gas from Jasmine, we have also recently completed our planned maintenance program in the North Sea and now have just one remaining milestone to achieve for the year – the start-up of Itaú Phase 2 in Bolivia, which is due in the coming weeks,” BG Group CEO Chris Finlayson said.

“Jasmine is the largest discovery to come onstream in the North Sea since the giant Buzzard field began production in 2007,” Mr Finlayson said. “BG Group’s involvement in both of these exploration and production successes demonstrates both our world-class exploration performance and our long-term commitment to the North Sea where we believe significant potential remains.”

The Jasmine development comprises a 24-slot wellhead platform with bridge-linked accommodation. The field is a high-pressure, high-temperature (HPHT) gas-condensate reservoir, which is located in Blocks 30/6 and 30/07a of the Central North Sea, approximately 6 miles (9 km) west of the Judy platform.
