The leading representative body for the UK’s offshore oil and gas industry has today welcomed news of first gas from Total’s Culzean field.

OGUK said the project, which has been delivered on time and under budget, further reinforces the UK industry as leaders in the safe and efficient production of energy.

Commenting on the news, OGUK’s chief executive, Deirdre Michie, said:

“This major project further reinforces the UK industry as leaders in the safe and efficient production of energy. Delivered on time and under budget and with complex geology, it is a great example of industry working together to get a job done.

“This is good news for our industry and for the UK, ensuring we can continue to provide secure, affordable energy from home-produced resources. Culzean is the largest UK gas find in 25 years and will meet around five per cent of the UK’s gas demand.

“It is also encouraging to see one of the basin’s long-term players delivering a challenging project by using pioneering digital technologies and contributing to the delivery of Vision 2035.”
