The Nuggets field consists of four isolated subsea wells within four gas-bearing accumulations. It is located in the Northern North Sea, 400km north-east of Aberdeen and 20km south of the Dunbar platform. The Nuggets reservoirs contain dry gas (99% methane) with a low proportion of condensate and water. It currently produces around 165 million standard cubic metres of gas per day.


The Nuggets wells are controlled from the Dunbar platform and are linked by subsea pipelines to Alwyn North. From Alwyn, the gas is exported via the Frigg UK pipeline to our St Fergus Gas Terminal near Peterhead.
