Abstract

The Fulmar field, discovered in 1975 by well 30/16–6 and appraised by 30/16–7 in 1977, is located in the Central North Sea, UK sector. It is situated mainly in block 30/16, licensed to Shell/Esso, and extends northwards into block 30/17b, at 01.01.1989 licensed to Amoco/Texas Eastern/Amerada Hess. The field is unitized and Shell operates the field on behalf of the Shell/Esso North Sea Venture and the Fulmar Unit.
