Clair Ridge

In October 2011, BP and its co-ventures ConocoPhillips, Chevron and Shell received approval from the UK government to proceed with the second phase of development of the giant Clair field.

BP has described Clair Ridge as its most significant current project on the UK continental shelf. It will be developed around the latest technologies to enhance oil recovery and improve operating efficiency. The two new platforms are scheduled to be installed in 2015 with production expected to begin in 2016. The new development will have potential peak production of up to 120,000 barrels of oil per day.
