HOUSTON -- First gas has been produced from Jasmine field in the UK North Sea. ConocoPhillips is the operator with a 36.5% interest, BG Group holds a 30.5% interest and Italy’s Eni holds 33%.
Jasmine was discovered in 2006, and it is one of the UK’s largest discoveries in the last 10 years. The Jasmine facility has the gross capacity to produce 140,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boed). In 2014, ConocoPhillips expects net production to be approximately 40,000 boed.
The Jasmine development comprises a 24-slot wellhead platform with bridge-linked accommodation. The field is a high-pressure, high-temperature gas-condensate reservoir, which is located in Blocks 30/6 and 30/07a of the Central North Sea, approximately six mi (nine km) west of the Judy platform.
