Ythan field goes onstream in North Sea

Offshore staff

CALGARY, CanadaIthaca Energy says EnQuest has brought onstream the Ythan field in the UK northern North Sea.

The field is being developed in phases, with the first well tied into the Don SW field infrastructure.

Ithaca expects operations at the Cook field in the UK central North Sea to be shut in for two months this summer due to of life extension works on the host Anasuria FPSO.

Elsewhere in the sector, most of the subsea facilities have been installed for Ithaca’s Greater Stella Area development program. All that remains this year is installation and tie-in of the 3-km (1.86-mi) oil export pipeline from the FPF-1 riser base to the single anchor loading structures.

Work continues on modifications to the production semisubmersible FPF-1, now set for sail-away to the field late in 1Q 2016.

Much of the pipework and electrical and instrumentation cables are in place. The focus at present is on completing pipework pressure testing, electrical, and instrumentation cable landing and termination and instrumentation device installation.
