Yesterday, Cygnus operator Engie Exploration and Production (E&P) announced first gas from the Bravo satellite. 

The outlying unmanned wellhead platform in the Southern North Sea’s Cygnus development accounts for 5% of overall UK gas production and is now supplementing 250 million cubic feet of gas per day, enough to heat the equivalent of 1.5 million homes. 

Bravo first gas was delivered from well B5 in one of the platform’s 10 well slots, out of 20 across the whole Cygnus complex.

Bravo is set to now supplement the main Alpha development which has been producing a plateau output of 250 million cubic feet per day since December 2016.

Chief executive of Engie Exploration and Production (E&P), Maria Moraeus Hanssen said: 

“This is a major milestone for the Cygnus development. It is a very successful achievement; well controlled and safely delivered.”

“Gas from this second drill centre will contribute significantly to extending the plateau production that Cygnus Alpha has been achieving for the last eight months.”


Overall the new gas field signifies a substantial boost to the UK’s long term gas needs with an estimated 2P (proved and probable) reserves of 110 mmboe (million barrels of oil equivalent) and a predicted production life of at least 20 years.

Additional Bravo wells are expected to become active within the coming months with a total of five available in 2018.
