Cumulative oil production to the end of 2000 from the Don Field was 15.4 MMBBLS, which with an estimated STOIIP of 152 MMBBLS represents a recovery to date of 10%. Don has been producing for over ten years. The field lies 15 km N of the Thistle Field, at the western edge of the Viking Graben in the northern North Sea. The structure of the field is complex, and it comprises several segments, the two largest of which have been developed, Don NE and Don SW. The reservoir sequence is Middle Jurassic Brent Formation, but more deeply buried and of a more distal facies than is typical for other fields in the province.
The Don Field is a sub-sea development tied-back to the Thistle platform, and Britoil (BP) is the operator. The field has been developed with five producers, three in NE and two in SW, with a supporting water injection well in each part of the field. All wells have been drill deviated from a seabed manifold located over Don NE.
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.
