The Breagh field is located in UKCS blocks 42/12a and 42/13a of the southern North Sea in 62 metres water depth, approximately 100 kilometres east of Teesside. Around 100 kilometres of 20” pipeline have been successfully installed offshore. The platform will be installed by Heerema Marine Contractors.
The field is being developed in two phases. Phase 1 entails gas to be exported via the 20" pipeline from the Breagh Alpha platform to Coatham Sands, Redcar on the UK mainland, and a 10 kilometres onshore pipeline for processing at the Teesside Gas Processing Plant (TGPP) at Seal Sands. The TGPP site is owned by Teesside Gas & Liquids Processing, and after processing at the TGPP, the gas will enter the UK National Transmission System. Phase 2, planned to receive project sanction in late 2011, is expected to include additional wells in the east of the field likely to be drilled from a further Breagh platform tied back to Alpha.
