GEAD takes in the Golden Eagle, Peregrine and Solitaire fields in blocks 20/1S, 20/1N and 14/26a, and in water depths ranging from 89-139 m (292-456 ft).
Development involved installation of separate production and wellhead platforms and two subsea production systems. Eventually 15 production wells and six water injection wells will be drilled from the facilities.
Currently two Golden Eagle wells are producing around 18,000 b/d of oil. At peak the project is expected to deliver 70,000 b/d.
