Summary

Licence P2452 contains the Skua Field in block 22/24c of the Central North Sea.  The Triassic oil reservoir was originally put on production between 2001 and 2005 from a single subsea well tied back to the ETAP infrastructure.  The well produced over 10mmboe at rates of up to 15,000 boepd.  Zennor, alonside operator BP, is working on a re-development of the Skua Field, again subsea tied back to ETAP, uing 4D seismic data to target not only attic oil in the central block, but undrained volumes from the Southern extension of the Field.  The FID decision is expected by H1 2020 with first Skua oil production in 2022 and the field taking advantage of potential development synergies with the nearby Seagull development.
