Judy/Joanne – 67.0% operator

Judy and Joanne are in Block 30/7a of the UK central North Sea approximately 240-kilometres south-east of Aberdeen. They sit in Quadrant 30 of the J-Area (or J-Block) with overlapping reservoirs. Judy is a manned platform with accommodation, production, processing and gas injection equipment. Joanne is a subsea manifold with six subsea wells tied back to Judy. Commercial oil production and gas sales from Judy/Joanne began in 1997. After being processed on Judy, gas is transported through the CATS Pipeline and liquids are transported through the Norpipe system to Teesside.

Jade – 67.5% operator

Jade lies approximately 240-kilometres south east of Aberdeen in Block 30/2c. It is a high-pressure/high-temperature (HP/HT) development, which consists of a normally unmanned installation (NUI) tied back via a subsea pipeline to the Judy facility from where all operations are controlled. Hydrocarbons from Jade were first discovered in 1995. Production from Jade is processed and exported through Judy.

Jasmine – 67.0% operator

Jasmine is a gas condensate field located in Blocks 30/6 and 30/7 of the UK central North Sea approximately 255 kilometres south east of Aberdeen. It is part of the J-Block first round licence awarded in 1964 and is the fourth development in the J-Area after Judy, Joanne and Jade. The development consisting of a 24-slot wellhead platform (JWHP) with bridge-linked accommodation, came onstream in 2013. The JWHP is tied back to the Judy platform to the east via an 8-kilometre pipeline and a riser platform at Judy. Production from Jasmine is processed and exported through Judy.

Talbot field development

The Talbot field lies within UKCS Block 30/13e, in the central North Sea region of the United Kingdom Continental Shelf. It is a discovered light-oil and associated gas resource opportunity with a life expectancy of up to 16 years. The proposed development is situated in a water depth of 75 metres with the nearest coastline (Scotland) located approximately 278 kilometres to the west thereof. The proposed development lies 7 kilometres west of the UK/Norway transboundary line.

The proposed development comprises a subsea drilling template and manifold with associated infrastructure and a pipeline connecting the Talbot field subsea facilities to the Judy platform, which is located approximately 16 kilometres to the north. Hydrocarbons produced from Talbot will be processed on Judy before being transported back to the UK mainland at Teesside.

Assuming the Regulator grants consent to the proposed development concept and a positive final investment decision is taken by the partners, subsea installation activities are currently planned to commence at the Talbot field in 2023 with first development drilling operations planned from late 2022.
