RockRose Energy currently holds non-operated interests in five UK Central North Sea oil and gas fields, consisting of both mature and recently onstream assets. These include the Arran, Nelson & Howe, and Blake & Ross fields.
The Arran gas condensate field is operated by Shell as a 60-kilometre subsea tie-back to the Shearwater platform. Hydrocarbons are processed on and then exported from the platform, with gas joining the SEGAL system and condensate the Forties pipeline system. Discovered in 1985, Arran has come onstream in 2021
Nelson & Howe Fields
The Nelson & Howe oil fields are operated by Shell. Developed with a fixed platform, Nelson produces light oil from a reservoir at a depth of approximately 2,200 meters. The smaller Howe field was brought onstream as a single-well subsea tie-back to the Nelson platform. The oil from the platform is transported by pipeline to the Forties field and then to shore via the Forties pipeline system.
Blake & Ross Field
The Blake & Ross oil fields, operated by Repsol Sinopec, produce into the Bleo-Holm Floating Production, Storage & Offloading (FPSO) vessel via subsea infrastructure. The Ross field is currently offline, while oil from the Blake field is produced via a subsea manifold and dual flowlines to the Ross FPSO. Blake is divided into two areas – the Blake Channel and the Blake Flank. The two were developed separately, with 6 production wells and 2 water injection wells drilled into the Blake Channel, and 2 production wells drilled into the Blake Flank.
