London — UK-based Zennor Petroleum has secured offtake deals for future production from the Finlaggan gas and condensate field in the UK North Sea, the company said Monday.

As a result, Finlaggan is on track to begin production in the fourth quarter of 2020, the company said, with peak output of 2.3 million cu m/d of gas and some 4,500 b/d of condensate expected.

The announcement represents a further boost for the UK gas sector following a number of final investment decisions for new gas fields in 2018.

"All major Finlaggan offtake agreements were executed in line with previously agreed commercial terms on March 28," Zennor said.

"These agreements provide for the export of Finlaggan production through the Britannia facilities, the Forties Pipeline System, the SAGE Terminal and the SEGAL system," it said.

Zennor declined to comment on the terms of the offtake deals, including the counterparties, citing "commercial sensitivities."


Finlaggan -- which was discovered in 1995 -- will comprise two subsea production wells tied back 20 km to the ConocoPhillips-operated Britannia platform.

Zennor also holds a 9% stake in Britannia.

"All aspects of the Finlaggan development project are firmly on track to deliver first production in Q4 2020 as planned," Zennor managing director Martin Rowe said.

UK commercial gas production amounted to 37.9 Bcm last year, according to S&P Global Platts Analytics data, down slightly from 38.1 Bcm the previous year.

Zennor has said it is focused on building out from its existing ETAP and Britannia production hubs.

The UK Oil and Gas Authority last year said the Finlaggan project was important for the further development of gas in the UK North Sea, as it utilizes existing infrastructure.
