On 28 June, first gas has been delivered on schedule from the Cayley field, the third and final new discovery to be brought on stream during the major redevelopment of the Montrose Area in the Central North Sea operated by Repsol Sinopec Resources UK.

Gross incremental production from Cayley, Godwin and Shaw (brought onstream in May) is expected to peak at 40,000 boepd. This will extend the life of the Montrose facilities, which were installed in 1976, to beyond 2030.

The Montrose Area Redevelopment (MAR) is a major capital project that significantly enhances the long term Montrose Area infrastructure. The project incorporates the development of three new fields - Godwin, Cayley and Shaw - and a new bridge-linked production platform (BLP) connected to the Montrose Alpha to provide additional process and plant support facilities.
