Equinor to connect UCKS field to Statfjord B

Equinor to connect UCKS field to Statfjord B

The Norwegian major operator is going ahead with its development plan for Barnacle.

Equinor is keen to develop the Barnacle field, located in the northern part of the UK North Sea, estimated to contain between 900.000 and 2.6 MMboe. Equinor is the main field operator holding 44.3% interest, with ExxonMobil 21.4% and Spirit Energy 34.3% as partners.

A fast decision needs to be made in case the field will be connected to the Statfjord B platform via a subsea tie-back, as the platform will cease producing in 2025.

Equinor intends to drill another exploration well on the field in August 2019, with first oil in Q4 2019.
