The Jade field is a high-pressure high-temperature gas field located approximately 150 miles south-east of Aberdeen, Scotland, in the UK Central North Sea. Jade is operated by Harbour Energy (67.5%), with Ithaca Energy (25.5%) and ENI (7.0%) holding non-operated interests. Ithaca Energy’s interest was increased from 19.93% to its current 25.5% through its acquisition of Siccar Point Energy in June 2022.
The Jade field has been developed using a Normally Unattended Installation that is tied back via a subsea pipeline to the Harbour Energy operated Judy installation. After initial processing on the Judy platform, gas is transported to the UK through the Central Area Transmission System pipeline and liquids through the Norpipe system to Teesside. First production from Jade was achieved in 2002.
A recent successful drilling campaign has increased field production to over 70MMscf/d with production from the gas field likely to continue into the next decade.
