The Wenlock gas field was discovered in 1974. Equity in the licence was acquired from BP in 2001 and from ConocoPhillips in 2005.
The Wenlock NUI platform was installed in September 2006 with first gas production in December 2007.
Wenlock consists of an unmanned 3 slot platform where 3 production wells have been drilled:
- W1 (2006)
- W2 (2007)
- W3 (2008)
Wenlock has produced 40bcf of gas up to end 2015. There are estimated remaining reserves of 5bcf. Gas is exported via a 37km pipeline to the Perenco operated Indefatigable platform and, from there, to Bacton.
