HOUSTON -- Shell and Maersk Oil are offering jointly an interest of up to 60% in two gas discoveries in the Danish North Sea, according to broker Indigo Pool (a subsidiary of Schlumberger).

The Elly and Luke fields are near the DUC’s Tyra gathering, treating, and transportation infrastructure. Planning is advanced for a combined development to deliver hydrocarbons into the Danish and Dutch gas transmission systems.

Indigo Pool says the two fields are thought to hold mean recoverable gas of 180 bcf, with upside estimated at up to 430 bcf. In addition, there are exploration prospects in the licenses with potential to hold up to 422 bcf.
