Although Bressay to the north is the nearest discovery, its geology is much more complex, characterized by deeper, more stratified channel sands. The nearest geologically analogous producing heavy oil field is thought to be Captain, 250 km (155 mi) to the southwest. Although of a lower Cretaceous age, Captain is also an unconsolidated, high.
Long dismissed by many as a potential source of oil or gas, the North Sea has, over the last four decades, become the centre of one of the world’s most productive energy industries. Gas was first found in quantity in the Groningen area of The Netherlands in 1959. This was followed by the first British discovery of gas in the West Sole field, off the coast of East Anglia, by the BP jack-up.

ETAP ranks as one of the largest and most commercially complex North Sea oil and gas developments of the past 20 years; multiple fields with varying ownership sharing a central processing facility (CPF). BP operates six of the seven ETAP fields; Machar, Madoes, Mirren, Mungo, Monan and Marnock. The non-operated Seagull field (BP ownership share 50%) will be tied back to the ETAP CPF with first.
To Develop Bressay heavy oil field in the UK North Sea. Description: The initial phase is set to employ a production, drilling and quarters (PDQ) jack-up linked to a floating storage unit to store the oil for offloading by shuttle tanker. Under the plans for Bressay phase one, the PDQ jack-up will have a production capacity of about 40,000 barrels per day of oil and a total liquids capacity of.
Fuelling confidence is the news that energy giant Shell is to go ahead with redevelopment of the Penguins oil and gas field in the North Sea.
