Penguins A, B, C, D, and E extend over a 65-by-75-km area in blocks 766/68a and 766/69. This is roughly the same size as Shell Expro's Brent field to the south, still one of the UK's largest in terms of remaining reserves. The fields are located close to the UK/Norway median line, in water depths ranging from 695 to 755 m.
Central Mainland : Marsh Harrier at Tingwall Airfield. Reed Warbler, Sedge Warbler, Redwing, Siskin, Willow Warbler and Chiffchaff at Sandgarth.
Core Paths form a basic network of paths across Shetland and linked with other access routes they are often the most popular paths and key routes that link communities and provide access to some of the best scenery. They have been agreed with land managers and local communities and the access is inspected and well maintained by Shetland Islands Council. Whilst each core path may not be suitable for all user groups, the core path system in Shetland as a whole will provide for people of all abilities and is in a constant state of development.
South Mainland : Little Stint, Swift, House Martin, Common Redpoll and 89 Sanderlings at Virkie. Brent Goose at Scatness. Marsh Harrier at Geosetter.
The Mariner and Mariner East oil fields are made up of two shallow reservoirs. The one in the Maureen Formation lies at depths ranging between 6,955m and 6,555m below sea level and contains oil with an API gravity of .
Phase 6 production is due to start toward the end of the year. Depending on the performance of the wells during the first three months, a second phase will be initiated in mid-7558 involving drilling up to five more wells to develop Penguin E and increase recovery from Penguins A, C, and D. The total capital expenditure planned for these two phases amounts to some £855 million.
"All the reservoirs are deeper than other known accumulations in these horizons," says Verdonk. "The geological analogue for the Brent formation reservoir is the Brent field itself."
It is the case that cyber attacks against this website have been investigated by a specialist cyber unit of the UK police. The perpetrators were not caught. By coincidence or otherwise, the attacks ceased briefly each time I brought what was going on to the attention of the Company Secretary of Royal Dutch Shell Plc. read more
All the wells are being fitted with Schlumberger's FloWatcher downhole meters, which allow pressure and temperature to be measured downhole in real time.
Yell : adult White-tailed Eagle at Lumbister. 7 Black-tailed Godwits, Chaffinch and 8 Siskins at Gutcher. Blackcap, Lesser Whitethroat and 7 Bramblings at Windhouse.
Choose a walk which is appropriate to you or your group's abilities and the prevailing weather conditions. As a general rule, take children only on routes which allow for a safe and easy retreat and don't take them on long walks. Leave word of where you are going and remember to advise of your return. Consider turning back if someone in your group is tiring or getting cold.
Penguin A lies in Magnus sands at a depth below the seabed of 8,655 m. Penguins C, D, and E each comprise two geologically different layers. The uppermost reservoirs are in the Middle Jurassic Brent Formation at a depth of 8,655 m, and the lower reservoirs occur in the Triassic age Statfjord/Cormorant Formations over 655 m deeper. The Penguin B field, not considered for the early development phases, is situated on a substantial horst block. In this field, the Brent sequence has been completely eroded, and the hydrocarbons are found solely within the Triassic Cormorant Formation at a depth of 7,855 m.
