Endeavour Gets Green Light for Rochelle Field Development

The United Kingdom Department of Energy and Climate Change has approved Endeavour's development plan for the Rochelle field on Block 15/27 in the UK sector of the North Sea, now known as East Rochelle. This approval kicks off phase one of the development of the Greater Rochelle area, stated Endeavour.

As part of the development plan, the operator will incorporate the recently discovered West Rochelle into this development plan, as phase two, with production estimated to commence in 2012. The field development plan calls for several wells to connect to production facilities on the Scott platform by a 19-mile-long (30-kilometer-long) pipeline. Endeavour operates the East Rochelle field, holding a 55.6% interest; Nexen Petroleum holds the remaining 44.4% interest.
