Shell and ExxonMobil Begin Production at Brigantine C Field

Shell and ExxonMobil have turned on the tap at the Brigantine C field in the North Sea last month after an extension at the Bacton gas terminal was completed. Production commenced in July. The field is expected to produce up to 120 million cubic feet a day of gas and 4,000 barrels a day of condensate.

The extension of the Bacton terminal was necessary because the quantity of liquids per unit of gas from the Brigantine C field were too great for processing at the complex. Gas from Brigantine C, discovered in 1998, contains significantly more liquids per unit of gas than other fields flowing into Bacton.
