First oil from Flyndre extends lifespan of nearby Clyde field

First-oil has been confirmed from the Maersk Oil-operated Flyndre field, 180 miles north-east from Aberdeen.

Flyndre – which straddles the UK and Norwegian North Sea boundary and was discovered in 1974 –  has been developed as a tie-back to the nearby existing Repsol Sinopec Clyde platform with a single production well (pictured).

Production from the Flyndre field is expected to peak at around 10,000 bopd with the field expected to produce until at least 2023.

First production from the Montrose Area Redevelopment is also imminent, with first oil from the Shaw field now confirmed for Q2 2017.

Georg Vidnes, Clyde Asset Manager, said: “This is a significant achievement for us and, importantly, allows us to maximise economic recovery from the Clyde field.  We anticipate that the additional production from Flyndre will extend the life of Clyde well into the next decade.”
