The Buzzard field is located in the Outer Moray Firth, central North Sea, 100km northeast of Aberdeen. The field straddles two licences - P.986 (Blocks 19/10 and 20/6) and P.928(S) (Blocks 19/5a and 20/1S) - and the water depth in the area is about 100m. It is operated by Nexen 43.2 % PetroCanada 29.89%, BG 21.73%, Edinburgh 5.16%.
The field will be developed by three bridge-linked platforms supporting the wellhead facilities (W), production facilities (P) and a third platform supporting living quarters and utilities (UQ).
The base case anticipates 27 production wells, eight of which will be pre-drilled and available for production start-up in late 2006.exico so far and many more are planned for the future.
The Scott and Telford fields straddle Blocks 15/21a and 15/22, and are located approximately 188 kilometres northeast of Aberdeen, Scotland. Water depth for both is approximately 140 metres. Oil and gas is produced through numerous subsea wells and from wells drilled from the Scott platform. Oil is delivered to the Grangemouth, Scotland refinery via the Forties pipeline. Gas is exported via the SAGE pipeline to a terminal at St. Fergus in northeast Scotland.
Nexen have a number of smaller discoveries on operated blocks near Scott, Buzzard or third-party facilities. Ettrick (20 km away) from Buzzard, while Perth, Black Horse and Bugle are closer to Scott Telford. Farragon should begin producing in late-2005, with a 20%, Nexen non-operated share of production.
