The intricate offshore installation of massive steel structures for the Golden Eagle Area Development has been captured in a fascinating new video. The short film gives a compelling insight into a four-day operation to lift and install the Mega Project's Production, Utilities and Quarters PUQ deck, 70km north-east of Aberdeen. The weather-dependent operation swung into action on the morning of Thursday 29 May, when the Saipem Heavy Lift Vessel S began the process of lifting the 11, tonne PU deck onto its jacket structure. The deck - with dimensions of

Nexen's Golden Eagle Takes Flight as 'Major Development' | Rigzone
The Golden Eagle development was given the go ahead in and is expected to see its first oil production take place in late Nexus will drill 20 development wells to access the resources, with 16 platform based wells and four subsea wells. Once fully operational, the Golden Eagle development is expected to produce the equivalent of million barrels of oil by the year and this figure is based on an initial production rate of around 70, barrels a day. The new development will be linked to the Solitaire Field project, which is located approximately four kilometres north east of Golden Eagle, and will also recover the underground fuel resources. Solitaire is expected to produce eight million barrels of oil, beginning in , and this oil will be processed at Golden Eagle. Whilst production is expected to begin on Golden Eagle later this year, the development is expected to reach its peak between and In total, the new development has a predicted lifespan of 25 years.

We also entered into additional agreements that allow us to participate in regional infrastructure expansion projects. The oil sands are transferred for processing using a hydro-transport system. We target oil-focused assets that are early life and generate strong cash margins. Our oil sands reserves estimates and development plans are continually evolving to reflect production performance and other information.
