The Vale of Pickering gas fields were discovered over a 20-year period. The development scheme was aimed to deliver 9.3 MMscfd gas to the Knapton Power Station nearby. Cumulative production is 30.3 bcf from an estimated 172 bcf gas initially in place. The gas fields comprise a series of low relief structures at depths around 5000 ft true depth subsea. The primary reservoir is Zechstein Group dolomitized and fractured carbonates of the Permian Kirkham Abbey Formation with average reservoir quality ranges of 12–13% porosity and 0.5–1.5 mD permeability. Secondary reservoirs exist in Carboniferous sandstones directly below the Base Permian...
