Oil & Gas UK has welcomed the announcement today (26 June) from EnQuest that first oil from the Kraken development has been delivered.

Deirdre Michie, Chief Executive, said: “This is very welcome news from EnQuest and further confirmation of the potential of the UK Continental Shelf. The pursuit of oil and gas is always challenging and EnQuest has taken a variety of innovative and efficient steps successfully to complete the large Kraken development project while keeping costs down. Effective partnership working with the supply chain has also played an important part. First oil from Kraken is good for EnQuest and good for our industry. It demonstrates once again what the North Sea can still deliver with the right approach and investment.”
