    History of this Location

    The Murchison Field was discovered in 1975 and extends beneath UK Block 211/19 and into Norwegian Block 33/9, c 130 nm NE of Shetland in c 155m of the Northern North Sea.

    The reservoir is located in northerly dipping Middle Jurassic Brent Group deltaic sandstones and is capped by Upper Jurassic shales. The platform was installed in 1979 and production began in Sep 1980. Oil was exported by pipeline to Sullom Voe (Shetland) via Dunlin and Cormorant A. Production had ceased by the end of Mar 2014.

    Decommissioning began in Sep 2014 and whilst 24500 tonnes of topsides were removed, parts of the 24600 tonne, 8 legged jacket were left standing 44m proud of the seabed. The approved decommissioning was completed in Jun 2017.
