Shell's Jackdaw Field Set for Approval


Shell’s North Sea Jackdaw field development is expected to be approved by the British Offshore Petroleum Regulator in the coming days according to Reuters sources.

  • The development was initially rejected on environmental grounds but a push to reduce energy prices and move away from Russian flows have delivered the impetus to renew interest in UK energy assets.
  • The filed is expected to produce around 6.5% of Britain’s gas output by the second half of 2025 and has reserves of between 120-250 million barrels of oil equivalent.
  • Jackdaw will be connected to Shell’s Shearwater gas hub.
