More information:

Beta is an oil discovery, operated by Suncor and situated approx. 20 km North West of the Snorre oil field facilities.

Beta Brent (34/4-10R) was discovered in 2000 and oil was proven in the Statfjord formation in 2010 (34/4-11) and further appraised in 2012 (34/4-13S). A fourth well (33/6-3S) was drilled into a separate segment of the Beta structure in 2012, but the well was dry.

Suncor is now planning to drill a new appraisal well with Borgland Dolphin in H1 2015 in the main segment of the discovery before detailed development planning will be undertaken. The NPD recoverable resource estimate of the main segment of Beta is 50 mmboe. The most likely development solution for Beta is a subsea tie-back to the Snorre field.
