Breagh Development Project -Update
TGPP is please to be working with RWE Dea and their partner Sterling Resources to progress the fast track development of the Breagh Field
The Breagh field is located in UKCS blocks 42/12a and 42/13a of the southern North Sea in 62 metres water depth, approximately 100 kilometres east of Teesside. RWE Dea holds 70% interest in the Breagh gas field as operator with Sterling Resources UK holding the remaining 30%.
First gas from Breagh Phase 1 is anticipated in mid 2013. A second phase of development (Breagh Phase 2) will include additional wells in the east of the field drilled either from a Breagh Bravo platform or sub-sea installation tied back to Breagh Alpha.
The Breagh gas will initially be received in new reception facilities that include large slug catchers, MEG storage and regeneration and condensate stabilisation. The gas will then be processed to meet the NTS entry specification in Train 1 which is being modified for the purpose.
Gas production from the Breagh area is expected to be significant and long-term and will encourage development in what has hitherto being an undeveloped area of the Southern North Sea. The additional gas volumes will help further extend the forecast economic life of TGPP and reduce the burden of shared/overhead costs for all users during any future opex share period
