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.
