Case Studies of MER UK in action
The Oil and Gas Authority and industry are working together to achieve MER UK.
- Southern Wye Project: OGA engaged with senior leadership within the Fulmar, Stella, Janice, J-Block and Norpipe Operators to connect the Stella Floating Production Facility (FPF), and the wider Greater Stella Area, to the available tie-in point on the Norpipe oil pipeline system to increase long-term Stella field operating efficiency.
- Marathon Oil Pipeline Works Authorisation (PWA): OGA worked with Marathon Oil, together with the Brae JV Partners, to fast track Marathon Oil’s application for a PWA to install a new umbilical system, thus safeguarding future West Brae production and increasing the availability of the Subsea Production Control System.
- Lancaster fractured basement reservoir. The OGA identified Lancaster as a key priority and worked closely with Hurricane Energy to help understand the field and the main uncertainties that would need to be overcome to unlock this exciting new play type.
