The Tyne Fields, operated by ARCO British Limited, are located within UKCS Block 44/18a, situated 180 km off the Yorkshire coast in a water depth of 65 ft. The fields comprise three separate accumulations, each with a different gas-water contact and varying gas compositions, which are known as Tyne North, Tyne South and Tyne West. The three accumulations are combined structural and stratigraphical traps. The reservoir sandstones are of the Lower Ketch member of the Schooner Formation and are Carboniferous Westphalian C/D in age. The fields have been developed through long reach development wells.
