First oil flows from Taqa’s Cladhan field (UK)

Abu Dhabi National Energy Company (Taqa), on Tuesday announced first oil from the new Cladhan field development in the UK North Sea. The field is developed as a subsea tie-back to the Taqa-operated Tern Alpha platform.

Peter Jones, Taqa’s UK managing director, said: “Cladhan is the third field developed by Taqa and the largest to date. First oil therefore represents a significant milestone. Developing Cladhan as a tie-back to Tern underlines our commitment to invest in infrastructure and to maximise economic recovery in the North Sea.”

The Cladhan field is located in the northern North Sea, approximately 100 kilometres north east of the Shetland Islands in a water depth of approximately 150 metres.

The field lies 17.5 kilometres southwest of the Tern platform and straddles UKCS blocks 210/29a and 210/30a. The development consists of two producer wells (P1 and P2) and one injection well (W1).

TAQA is operator of Cladhan, with a 64.5% interest. Its co-venturers Sterling Resources (UK) Ltd and MOL Group hold a 2% and 33.5% interest respectively.

In the UK, TAQA operates five platforms which produce from 13 fields spread across the Northern North Sea and the Central North Sea. TAQA is also the operator of the Brent Pipeline
