Columbus Field Development

Serica Energy (UK) Limited

Central North Sea (UKCS)

Scope of Work
Orbis was commissioned by Serica Energy to conduct an EIA for the Columbus gas and condensate field in the central North Sea.

The development concept for Columbus comprises a single subsea production well connected by a spool piece to the proposed Arran to Shearwater subsea pipeline via a tie-in structure. A chemical injection umbilical will run alongside the Arran to Shearwater pipeline from the Shell operated Shearwater platform to the Columbus wellhead.  Fluids from the Columbus field will be processed at the Shearwater platform, located approximately 43 km to the south west of Columbus.

Development consent for the Columbus field was granted by the OGA in 2018.
