The fourth new North Sea field to be brought onstream by Shell U.K. Limited this year, Curlew C, has achieved production start-up.
The Curlew C development marks the first time that Shell has produced hydrocarbons from a chalk formation in the North Sea.
The Curlew C field lies in block 29/7 of the UK Central North Sea, 210 kms (130 miles) east south east of Aberdeen. It was discovered in 1993 approximately 6 kms (4 miles) east of the Maersk Curlew FPSO (floating, production, storage and offtake vessel). The FPSO is owned by Maersk who operate it on Shell’s behalf to handle production from the Curlew complex which to date consisted of Curlew B and D.
