IndigoPool reports that Shell and Maersk Oil are jointly offering up to 60 percent interest in the Elly and Luke development project located near the existing Tyra gathering, treating and transportation infrastructure on the Danish Continental Shelf. 

Project partners are in the advanced stages of planning for the combined development of the Elly and Luke discoveries that will deliver hydrocarbons into the Danish and Dutch gas transmission systems.
Site surveys have been acquired for the platform locations and the pipeline route to the Tyra West for processing. Transportation pipeline capacity is available, and commitments are in the early stages of negotiation. 

Development plans are currently being evaluated, but the Elly field will likely require two wells, and the Luke field will require three wells. Two unmanned wellhead platforms have been proposed with slots for further drilling included. 

First gas production at Luke and Elly is expected before 2014. 

The Luke and Elly fields are expected to yield mean recoverable gas resources of 180 BCF, with upside estimated up to 430 BCF. In addition, exploration prospects in the licenses have potential gas resources estimated up to 422 BCF. 

Currently, Shell holds 43.3 percent, and Maersk holds 36.7 percent through its parent company AP Moller Maersk. The remaining 20 percent is held by the Danish North Sea Fund.
