The Elgood Field was discovered in 1991 by well 48/22-4, drilled by Enterprise Oil, but was not progressed to development due to its perceived size and gas prices at that time.
It is a good quality Rotliegend Leman sandstone reservoir that tested gas to surface at rates in excess of 17 MMscfd. Gas was also tested from the Hauptdolomit interval 700 feet above the Leman interval but at low rates without stimulation.
During development engineering studies in 2018 and 2019 it was decided to include Elgood as part of a Phase 1 development comprising Blythe, Elgood and Southwark and the Field Development Plan was amended accordingly.
Elgood will be co-developed with Blythe as a single subsea well tied back to the unmanned platform and producing well at Blythe.
The EIA for the Blythe Hub was submitted on 31 January 2018 in line with milestones agreed with the OGA.
FID was declared in October 2019 and first gas is planned for early Q3 2021.
