GDF SUEZ: Full Production Begins from Juliet Field in North Sea

GDF SUEZ has commenced gas production from the second of two development wells on the Juliet field on the 9th of March, a subsea development on the western flank of the Southern Gas Basin, 39 km east of the Lincolnshire coastline in the United Kingdom. This follows first gas from the initial development well on 5th January 2014.

The field is now producing at its plateau rate of 80mmscfg/d. This is the equivalent to 400,000 bbls a month.

The fast track project has been executed and successfully delivered in a time frame of less than 18 months from sanction to first gas.

Jean-Claude Perdigues, General Manager GDF SUEZ E&P UK said: “The start-up of the second Juliet well is a significant step in the evolution of GDF SUEZ in the UK as it marks the transition of the Juliet development to a fully producing asset. It also underpins our commitment to continuously developing the potential of the United Kingdom Continental Shelf (UKCS) and the value that can be derived in a mature region through the efficient use of existing infrastructure.”

Produced gas is being transported by a 22 km pipeline to the Pickerill A platform and then transported onshore via the existing export pipeline to the Theddlethorpe gas terminal.

The Juliet field was discovered by GDF SUEZ E&P UK in December 2008 by vertical well 47/14b-10 which found a dry gas accumulation. The Juliet reservoir is considered to be fully appraised Rotliegendes Leman Sandstone reservoir with gross associated reserves of 11.6 Mboe. The field lies in Block 47/14b, licence P614. Juliet is a strategic key development in one of GDF SUEZ’ core growth areas in the UKCS.

GDF SUEZ is also operator of the Cygnus field and the UK licence operator of the Orca field in the Southern North Sea, as well as the operator of a number of exploration licences in the area.
