The Auk field is located approximately 249km East-South-East of Aberdeen in Block 30/16 in the UK sector of the North Sea in a water depth of 85m. Auk was discovered in September 1970 with the platform installed in July 1974 and first oil production in December 1975. The Auk ‘A’ (Alpha) platform is an integrated drilling, production and living quarters facility supported on an eight leg jacket structure. The drilling derrick has since been removed.
Repsol Sinopec Resources UK Limited is preparing to decommission the Auk field. In keeping with our commitment to open and honest communication, we’ve also begun to engage with a wide range of organisations, special interest groups, advisory bodies and other stakeholders with an interest in the future of the Auk field. This fits with the expectations of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), the regulatory authority for decommissioning.
This website is designed to support this engagement and act as a gateway for those seeking information, news and opportunities to help shape the decommissioning programme.
