Description

  • The field has been developed as a subsea tie-back to the main Foinaven Oil Field and currently utilises three production wells and two water injectors from a single subsea production manifold. Two shuttle tankers offload Foinaven crude from the Foinaven floating, production, storage and offtake vessel (“FPSO”) which is then shipped directly to refineries. Gas is exported via a 10 inch pipeline to the West of Shetlands Gas Pipeline System which transports gas to the Sullom Voe Terminal in the Shetland Islands. Gas is then transported to the Magnus Field via the East of Shetland Pipeline System for use in the Magnus Enhanced Oil Recovery scheme.
