Project Description
The Arbroath and Montrose fields are located in blocks 22/18 and 22/17roughly 130 miles east of Aberdeen towards the northern end of the Central Graben area. The two fields have simple non-faulted, anticlinal structures separated by a structural saddle with only 15 ft of relief. The structures are a product of Alpine tectonism combined with differential compaction of the reservoir section. The hydrocarbons have a Kimmeridge Clay source and occur wholly within the Forties Sandstone interval. The oil is trapped by mudstones of the Sele Formation. The reservoir sandstones were deposited in a prograding submarine fan complex and have maintained an average porosity of 23% and a permeability of 80 md.

Talisman Issues Montrose Redevelopment Contract to Subsea 7
Type: Development Activity

Mar. 2013 - Talisman Energy awarded a $285 million contract to Subsea 7 for subsea construction work that will support the Montrose Area Redevelopment Project. Contract scope includes project management, engineering, procurement, fabrication and installation of two 3-mile pipeline bundles that will tie-back the Cayley production wells to the Montrose facilities. Additionally, the scope will include procurement, fabrication and installation of an 11-mile production, water injection and gas lift pipeline with control umbilical to tie-back the Shaw field to Montrose. Engineering and project management will begin immediately with offshore activities due to commence in 2014.
