The field was discovered in 1991 and put into production in 2002. The field is currently producing 8,000 boe/d and 4.3 MMcf/d of gas. Maclure has been developed as a subsea tieback to the Gryphon FPSO, located 3 km (2 mi) west.

Maclure is operated by Maersk Oil, which owns a 38.19% stake. TAQA and Apache round out the consortium with 37.04% and 17.18%, respectively.

Completion of the transaction remains subject to necessary approvals.
