Nexen's Buzzard facility in the UK North Sea.

A Key Producing Area with Significant Room for Growth

Nexen Petroleum U.K. Limited has been a key player in the UK North Sea since 2004. Today, we are one of the country’s largest energy producers. Nexen is the operator of the Buzzard, Golden Eagle and Scott platforms.

Our business strategy sets out to maximise the value of our existing portfolio as well as create new opportunities through global growth.

Nexen operates two of the top ten producing assets in the UK and is one of the largest oil producers in the UK North Sea where we’ve more than doubled our proved reserves since 2004. We are also actively exploring in the Central North Sea and West of Shetland.

International growth is another key focus, with Nexen’s UK business supporting exploration wells off Atlantic Canada, Ireland and Senegal.  

Nexen’s UK-based employees and contractors create value by producing oil in a safe and reliable manner, with a shared commitment to excellence. For us, sustainable energy development is about engaging stakeholders, managing our environmental footprint and sharing the benefits of resource development with the communities where we operate.
