Rhyl Field Start-Up Secures 400 UK Jobs

change text size

Centrica Energy reported Tuesday that it has delivered first production from the Rhyl gas field offshore UK. Bringing the field on stream will help secure the future of 400 jobs in northwest England.

The Rhyl field – located in the Irish Sea some 25 miles off the coast of northwest England – was first discovered in 2009 and is wholly-owned and operated by Centrica. Gas from the field is being produced from its existing North Morecambe platform and it is being processed at the firm's onshore complex at Barrow, UK.

Centrica noted that Rhyl is the first new field in the region to be brought on stream for 10 years, with the firm saying it represents "an important milestone" in extending the life of Centrica's Morecambe Bay operations and will take production well beyond 2020.

Mike Astell, Centrica Energy's regional director for the east Irish Sea, commented in a statement:

"This is incredibly exciting news for everyone involved because it marks another lease of life for the Morecambe Bay area, securing energy for the UK and jobs for the local area."
