The Pickerill Field is a dry gas accumulation straddling four separate licences in the UK Southern North Sea. Discovered in 1984, 12 appraisal wells were drilled to define the field before Annex B approval in 1989. Subsequently, Pickerill has been developed using 15 high angle wells, a large number of which have been sidetracked reflecting the geological complexity of the accumulation. Pickerill has been in production since August 1992, and has an estimated initial reserves in excess of 500 BCF.
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.
