P666, P188, P362 ‘Elgin Franklin Field’

The Franklin Field was discovered in 1985 and the Elgin Field discovered in 1991. Production started from both fields in 2001 and in 2003 the West Franklin reservoir was discovered. This was developed from the Franklin platform and first production was achieved in 2007.

The fields are gas condensate producers and are the largest high pressure high temperature development in the world. The produced oil is through the Forties Pipeline System (via the GAEL pipeline) while produced gas is transported through the SEAL pipeline to Backton, Norfolk.

The installation consists of three separate platforms, two of which are connected by a bridge link.
