The Cook field lies approximately 105 miles (170 km) north-east of Aberdeen, Scotland, in the UK Central North Sea, in water depths of approximately 301 feet (92 m).
Discovered in 1983, in Block 21/20a, the Cook field is an oil and gas condensate field. First oil from the field was achieved in April 2000.
The Cook field development consists of one production well (on natural depletion) tied back approximately 10 kilometres to the Anasuria Operating Company operated floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel, which also serves as a host facility for a number of nearby fields.
Stabilised crude oil is exported from the FPSO to market via shuttle tankers. Gas is exported via the Fulmar pipeline to the Shell operated gas terminal at St Fergus in the North East of Scotland.
Cook is operated by Ithaca Energy (UK) Limited (61.345 percent) with Ping Petroleum (19.327 percent), and Hibiscus Petroleum (19.327 percent) holding non-operated interests in the field.
