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.
