ocated 150km off the coast of Lincolnshire, UK, the Cygnus field has been producing gas since December 2016, contributing around 6% of the country’s total gas production.

Cygnus consists of two installations, Alpha and Bravo. The Alpha installation has three platforms: one for extracting gas, one for processing and exporting it, and a third for accommodation and support services.

Operated by Neptune E&P UK, Cygnus is the biggest discovery in the southern North Sea for 30 years, and the largest single producing gas field in the UK. It exports gas via a new 55km connection to an existing pipeline, which ends in Norfolk.

During construction, the project contributed £1.3bn to the UK economy and supported 5,000 jobs. It has an estimated production life of at least 20 years.
