The Cygnus project, sanctioned in August 2012, is expected to contribute 5% to UK gas production at its peak – supplying gas to the equivalent of 1.5 million homes in Britain. ENGIE E&P in the UK is the operator of Cygnus, responsible for ensuring that this valuable hydrocarbon resource is extracted and supplied safely and efficiently.
Our involvement with Cygnus goes back to 2002 – when we recognised the potential of the field which had been previously and unsuccessfully explored by other operators.
We successfully completed the Offshore Installation Campaign during the summer of 2015, and are now in the Hook-up and Commissioning phase. First gas is expected in 2016.
