Chinese oil and gas company CNOOC has started production from the Buzzard Phase II development in the UK North Sea.

Buzzard Phase II sits around 100 kilometers northeast of Aberdeen, Scotland, with an average water depth of approximately 96 meters.

While fully utilizing the existing Buzzard facility, the project has also built a set of underwater production systems, CNOOC siad. Two production wells and two water injection wells have been brought on stream.

CNOOC Petroleum Europe Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of CNOOC Limited, is the operator of Buzzard and has 43.21% interest. The remaining interests are held by Suncor Energy (29.89%), Harbour Energy (21.73%) and ONE-Dyas (5.16%).
