The Catcher development located in the Central North Sea comprises the Catcher, Varadero and Burgman Fields.
Hydrocarbons were discovered in Tertiary reservoirs in both the Cromarty and Tay sandstones in 2010-2011, lying at depths of up to 4,700 ft and containing 25 to 31⁰ API oil. These fields have subsequently been developed with subsea wells tied-back to the Catcher FPSO. First oil was achieved in December 2017.
There are now a total of 15 long horizontal producers, supported by 4 water injectors and gas injection.
Further drilling in 2022 will target additional development opportunities.
