UK engineering solutions provider, Costain, is involved in a project which the Oil and Gas Authority has recently lauded as “significant” for the future of the UK continental shelf.

Costain has worked closely with Hurricane Energy, the UK-based oil and gas company focused on hydrocarbon resources in naturally fractured basement reservoirs, to produce a number of field development options for their Lancaster Discovery, West of Shetland. Globally, naturally fractured basement reservoirs are prolific oil producers, but they represent a new opportunity for the UKCS.

Over the last 24 months the Costain team, in collaboration with Hurricane, has refined these original concepts to define an initial development concept based around an Early Production System (EPS). The primary objectives of the EPS are to gain additional knowledge of the reservoir and minimise capital exposure, whilst providing an economic return on the capital invested.
