Commenting on CNOOC’s announcement regarding a new gas discovery on the Glengorm prospect, Oil & Gas UK’s market intelligence manager, Ross Dornan, said:

“This is a major find and a great example of partner companies, CNOOC International, Total E&P and Edison working together to explore and unlock the potential of the UK Continental Shelf UKCS). Glengorm was a challenging prospect to drill, however the combined determination and perseverance of the partners has paid off. The location of the discovery, in the central North Sea, also provides a valuable opportunity to make use of the UKCS’ extensive infrastructure network.

Coming so soon after the Glendronach discovery in September, Glengorm is a major milestone towards adding another generation of productive life to the UK North Sea and realising the ambition of Vision 2035.”
