Neptune Energy today welcomed the successful start-up of the Seagull field in the UK North Sea, announced today by BP, here.

The Seagull project was developed by Neptune in partnership with BP and JAPEX and is tied back to the BP-operated central processing facility of the Eastern Tough Area Project in the Central North Sea.

Neptune’s UK Country Director, Alan Muirhead, said: “As the operator of the project, Seagull is an excellent example of what can be achieved through close collaboration. 

“From the beginning, the partners have taken an innovative approach to ensure we can collectively maximise the recovery of domestic energy resources while extending the life of existing subsea infrastructure to reduce development costs.”
