Corvette is a small prolific gas reservoir with reserves of 211 BSCF located on the Indefatigable Shelf in the Southern North Sea. The reservoir is the Permian Rotliegend aeolian sandstone, capped by Zechstein evaporites and sourced from the Carboniferous Coal Measures. The structure is a 'pop up' between the Gawain and Baird Fields. The field was discovered in 1996 and brought on production in 1999, with gas being evacuated via the Leman Field to the Shell/Esso Bacton gas terminal.

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.
