OGA: Strategy to maximise recovery of tight gas from the Southern North Sea

The Oil and Gas Authority (OGA) has published a new strategy, outlining a plan to maximise the economic recovery of ‘tight gas’ from the Southern North Sea (SNS).

The OGA conservatively estimates there are some 3.8 trillion cubic feet (tcf) of remaining gas accessible in the SNS, including infill opportunities, undeveloped discoveries and prospects.

However, tight gas reservoirs have often been disregarded as high cost and high risk, with licence holders tending to focus instead on less complex developments with lower costs and higher recovery factors.

The OGA’s Southern North Sea Tight Gas Strategy has been developed to help stimulate greater use of technology and collaboration to overcome these barriers and unlock this significant remaining potential in the SNS.
