Catcher area – 50.0% operator
Catcher lies in block 28/9a of the UK central North Sea approximately 174 kilometres from Aberdeen in water depths of around 90 metres. The Catcher discovery was made by an exploration well drilled in May 2010. The area produces from 18 subsea wells on Catcher, Varadero and Burgman. These are a combination of production and water injection wells, which are tied back to a newly built and leased floating, production, storage, offloading (FPSO) vessel. BW Offshore owns and operates the Catcher FPSO. Oil is offloaded by tankers and gas is reinjected into the reservoir. First oil was delivered from Catcher in December 2017, Varadero in January 2018 and Burgman in May 2018.
