The Deveron Field, Block 211/18a, UK North Sea
Cumulative oil production at the end of 2000 was 15.4 MMBO, which for a STOIIP of 61.3 MMBO, represents a recovery to date of 25%. Deveron shares facilities on the Thistle Alpha platform and has been on production since 1984, from two (originally three) deviated platform wells. The performance of these wells has been steady, subject to well and plant uptimes. Field management activity continues to focus on monitoring and maintaining the two production wells, and defining field and production enhancement opportunities.
Figures & Tables
Memoir 20 is the most comprehensive reference work on the UK’s oil and gas fields available. It updates and substantially extends Memoir 14 (1991), United Kingdom 0il and Gas Fields, one of the Geological Society’s best-selling books. This new edition contains updates on many of the ageing giant fields, as well as entries for fields either undiscovered or undeveloped when Memoir 14 was published.
The book is divided into nine parts covering the major petroleum provinces both offshore and onshore United Kingdom, from the Gas Basin in the southern North Sea to the Viking Graben in the northern North Sea, from the Atlantic Frontier to the Irish Sea and from the Wessex Basin to the East Midlands. Each part contains a reference map showing field locations. The introductory chapters reveal the stories behind the major plays and discoveries therein, and their tectonic and stratigraphic framework. There are two appendices: tabulated field data and a comprehensive list for all of the UK's 300+ oil and gas fields.
