LONDON -- Production has begun from the first of two wells on the Shelley field, according to operator Premier Oil. The second well is expected onstream within the next 48 hours, the company says.

The Shelley field was discovered in 1984 by the 22/2-2 well and is located in the North Sea, south of the Premier-operated Balmoral complex. The field is in a Palaeocene Forties reservoir and contains 31° API oil.

The field has been developed using two horizontal subsea production wells equipped with downhole electric submersible pumps. The wells are connected via a short flowline and a control umbilical to the FPSO Sevan Voyageur.
