Sean North, Sean South and Sean East are small prolific gas fields located on the Indefatigable Shelf in the Southern North Sea. They, like most of the other fields in the area, have a Carboniferous source, a Rotliegend aeolian sandstone reservoir and a Zechstein evaporite cap rock. Sean North and South have been developed to fulfil a peak-shaving role, being produced for only a few days per year in times of high gas demand when they can produce at rates of up to 600 MMSCF/D. East Sean is sold to the direct market. Reserves for the fields are 234 BCF (North), 488 BCF (South) and 127 BCF (East).
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.
