Discovered in 1966 and starting production in 1968, Leman was the second gas field to come into production in the UK sector of the North Sea and is still producing gas today. It is classified as a giant field with an estimated initial gas-in-place of 397 BCM of gas in the aeolian dune sands of the Rotliegend Group. The field extends over five blocks and is being developed by two licence groups with Shell and Amoco (now BP Amoco) being the operators.
