First Oil at BP’s Clair Ridge

The Oil and Gas Authority welcomes BP’s Clair Ridge announcement:

“First oil from the newly built Clair Ridge platform is a major milestone for the UKCS. The OGA continues to view the West of Shetland as strategically important with substantial remaining potential.  The Clair Field has in excess of 7 billion barrels in place and is expected to sustain production for many decades to come, with significant scope for further phases of development.

 “We welcome BP’s ongoing commitment to delivering MER UK, particularly in the deployment of the new Enhanced Oil Recovery technology LoSal, to help produce 400 million additional barrels from the field.”
