Serica Energy to develop Belinda field as subsea tie-back to North Sea’s Triton FPSO

May 20, 2024

(WO) – Serica Energy has received final approval from the NSTA to develop the 100%-owned and operated Belinda field in the North Sea. The field will be tied back to the Triton FPSO following the drilling of the development well, which is scheduled to take place in the first half of 2025.

The Belinda well is the 5th well in Serica’s Triton area drilling campaign, which commenced in April this year using the COSL Innovator drilling rig. All these wells are designed to enhance production via the Triton FPSO

Proven and probable reserves in the Belinda field are estimated at about 5 MMbbl of oil equivalent (80% oil). Production is scheduled to commence in 1Q2026 following the tie-back work to the Triton FPSO. 

According to Serica’s website, Belinda is in Block 21/30f, approximately 6 km southeast of the Triton FPSO in the North Sea. Belinda was discovered in 1990 and appraised in 2016.

David Latin, Chairman and Interim CEO of Serica, said, “We are delighted to have received approval to develop Belinda. This will build on our strong track record of delivering growth and adding value through investment in our assets. We have further potential projects in our portfolio which we continue to assess, including the possible re-development of the Kyle field, which could, like Belinda, be another low emissions tie-back candidate to the Triton FPSO.”
