"The ground-breaking Culzean development is the latest addition to BP's resilient North Sea portfolio and will play an important role in growing our UK production, expected to reach 200,000 barrels equivalent a day by 2020. I would like to congratulate the project team and our partners for safely achieving first gas ahead of the initial plan and with significant efficiency gains."

Culzean is a 1.2 Tcf High Pressure High Temperature (HPHT) lean gas condensate field located approximately 140 miles east of Aberdeen in Block 22/25a of the Central North Sea in water depths of 300 feet. The project scope includes a stand-alone three bridge-linked platform development with dry gas export via the Central Area Transmission System (CATS) and liquids export via a new-build Floating Storage and Offloading tanker (FSO). A new Heavy Duty Jack Up (HDJU) rig, the Maersk Highlander, will drill six production wells and one produced water re-injection well.
