AGR Joins Buzzard Phase 2 Project

AGR is working alongside other industry players tasked with developing Phase II of the Buzzard – one of the largest UK North Sea oil discoveries.

The project has received full sanction from its partners and Field Development Plan has been approved by the UK Oil and Gas Authority.

Buzzard Phase II (BPII) is using an integrated project team, comprised of Nexen Petroleum UK and supply chain partners AGR and its well design and drilling expertise, Baker Hughes, a GE Company (BHGE), COSL Drilling Europe, Subsea 7 and WorleyParsons Services UK.

Located about 96 km northeast of Aberdeen in approximately 96 metres of water, the Nexen-operated Buzzard platform is the largest UK North Sea oil discovery in the past two decades. BPII is a subsea development of the Buzzard northern area. The objective of this project is to safely develop additional reserves and bring new production on stream, supporting the goal of maximizing economic recovery in the North Sea.

The selected concept is a subsea development of the Buzzard northern area, approx. 5km NE of Buzzard consisting of a 12-slot manifold (8 Production slots and 4 Water Injection). The development will be tied back to the existing Buzzard complex with a pipeline bundle assembly incorporating pipelines, manifolds, subsea controls and chemical injection. A brownfield module is to be installed on the Production Platform for processing and export via current export pipeline routes.

Svein Sollund, CEO of AGR, said: “AGR is delighted to be working alongside other global industry leaders as a key member of the alliance tasked with developing Phase II of the one of the largest UK North Sea oil discoveries.”

First oil is expected Q1 2021.
