Buzzard Is the UK's Highest-Producing Field

Located about 96 km northeast of Aberdeen in approximately 96 metres of water, Buzzard is the largest UK North Sea oil discovery in the past two decades.

Oil from Buzzard is exported via the Forties pipeline to the Kinneil Terminal in Scotland. Natural gas is exported via the Frigg pipeline system to the St. Fergus Gas Terminal in northeast Scotland.

Nexen Petroleum U.K. Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of CNOOC Limited, is the operating partner of Buzzard (43.21%), with Suncor Energy UK Ltd. (29.89%), BG Global Energy Ltd (21.73%) and Edinburgh Oil and Gas Ltd (4.70%) and Oranje-Nassau Energy Petroleum Ltd (0.46%) also holding interests in the field and its facilities.
