Project Summary
The Clair field is located in block 206/08, approx 75km West of Shetland and has been producing since 2004 through the Clair Phase 1 development. The field extends over an area of 220km2 in water depths of approximately 140m. The Clair Ridge project is the second stage in a phased development of the Clair Field and is planned to target the part of the field to the North of Clair Phase 1. The Clair Ridge facilities have two fixed steel jacket platforms and and topsides, bridge-linked, comprising of a Drilling and Production (DP) platform and a Quarters and Utilities (QU) platform. The new Clair Ridge facilities will tie in to the existing oil and gas export pipelines to the Shetland Islands. There is also provision on DP for future subsea tie-backs.

First oil achieved on 23 November 2018. Further construction and commissioning work continues in summer 2019 with the support of a flotel from May to October.

The FDP has now been approved. Please click on the following link to view the recent field approvals page.
