First Oil Achieved at Cladhan Field

Abu Dhabi National Energy Company (TAQA) announced Tuesday that its UK subsidiary has achieved first oil from the new Cladhan field development in the UK North Sea. The field has been developed as a subsea tie-back to the TAQA-operated Tern Alpha platform. 

Peter Jones, TAQA's managing director for the UK, commented in a company statement:

"Cladhan is the third field developed by TAQA and the largest to date. First oil therefore represents a significant milestone. Developing Cladhan as a tie-back to Tern underlines our commitment to invest in infrastructure and to maximise economic recovery in the North Sea."

Cladhan is located some 60 miles northeast of the Shetland Islands in a water depth of approximately 490 feet of water. TAQA is the operator of the Cladhan, with a 64.5-percent interest.

In the UK, TAQA operates five platforms that produce from 13 fields spread across the northern North Sea and the central North Sea.
