Abstract

The Guinevere Gas Field was discovered in January 1988 by the Mobil-operated well 48/17b-5. The field lies in the UK Sector of the Southern North Sea and occupies Block 48/17b. The field is located within the footwall of the Dowsing Fault Zone on the western flank of the Sole Pit Basin. Guinevere is a compressional northwesterly-trending fault block that comprises Early Permian Leman Sandstone Formation (Rotliegend Group) reservoir, sourced from the Carboniferous below and sealed by Later Permian Zechstein evaporates above.

The Guinevere Gas Field is estimated to contain 90 BCF of recoverable gas reserves and was brought on-stream in June 1993 using a single not-normally-manned minimum facilities platform. Field life is predicted to be 13 years. Gas and condensate are evacuated though the Lancelot Area Production System (LAPS) to the onshore Bacton gas terminal in East Anglia.
