Janice Field development plan approved

Sep 15, 1997 02:00 AM

The United Kingdom's Department of Trade and Industry has approved the development plan for the Janice Field in the U.K. sector of the North Sea. Kerr-McGee Oil (U.K.) PLC, is operator and holds a 50.9 % interest.
Co-venturers are Phillips Petroleum Company UK Ltd, 24.4 %; Agip U.K. Ltd, 18.2 %; and Svenska Petroleum Exploration U.K. Ltd, 6.5 %.
The Janice Field was discovered in 1990 and is situated in UKCS Block 30/17a, about 170 miles south-east of Aberdeen. Water depth in the area is 300 feet. The field will be developed using horizontal oil production and water injection wells tied back from subsea well-heads to a floating production unit (FPU). The FPU is an existing semi-submersible accommodation unit that was purchased by the Janice co-venturers from Smedvig Asa. It will be converted for oil and gas production under a fabrication contract with Aker McNulty Limited at their yard on the Tyne River.
Oil will be exported from the FPU via a new pipeline to the Norpipe system for redelivery at Teeside. Gas will be exported via a new pipeline to the adjacent Judy platform.
The field is estimated to contain 70 million barrels of recoverable oil. First production is scheduled for third quarter 1998 and peak oil export rates are expected to reach 55,000 barrels per day.
It is anticipated that the Janice installation will form a hub for future developments in the area, and extra capacity will be designed into the facility for that purpose.
