LONDON — Harbour Energy has approved the multi-well Talbot subsea tieback development to the J-Area gas-condensate complex in the UK central North Sea.
In its latest results statement, the company said it expected drilling to start later this year, followed by first oil around year-end 2024.
Harbour has further plans to appraise the Leverett structure close to its Greater Britannia Area in the same region, after striking an agreement with NEO Energy to equalize their interests across the Leverett licenses.
Elsewhere in the central sector, the third well is underway of the latest Catcher drilling campaign, an infill well on the Burgman Far East target.
Harbour plans more UK North Sea infill and development wells and interventions at J-Area, Beryl and Tolmount East.
Offshore Indonesia, the company will submit a plan of development for the Tuna Field later this year and aims to take final investment decision around year-end 2023.
Evaluation continues with partners bp and Mubadala on last month’s Timpan1 discovery well on Indonesia’s offshore Andaman II license, and follow-up drilling could start in late 2023.
Finally, Harbour expects to participate in two exploration commitment wells, Kan and Ix, on Block 30 offshore Mexico later this year.
