A senior BP executive has said the UK supermajor is “quite happy” with its flagship oil and gas assets in the UK West of Shetland area, some of which have been the focus of efforts to remedy recent production setbacks.

BP operates the 7 billion-barrel Clair field, where the second phase of development — the twin-platform Clair Ridge facilities — started production in November 2018.

Recent production at Clair Ridge has been running at about 40,000 barrels per day of oil, well behind an expected peak production of 120,000 bpd.
