Overview

UK and Norway developments

Cairn has built a strong position in the UK and Norway by acquiring exploration, appraisal and development assets and participating in licence rounds. The mature basins of the North Sea provide balance to the broader exploration portfolio and will deliver free cash flow to sustain future exploration.

Kraken and Catcher, two of the largest ongoing development projects in the UK North Sea are the Group’s core development projects and a third, the Skarfjell discovery in Norway, is in the early stages of development planning. Kraken and Catcher are targeting first oil in 2017 with targeted peak production net to Cairn of ~25,000 boepd (barrels of oil equivalent per day).
