The gas field is located about 34km off the coast of East Yorkshire. The development of the Centrica-owned field comprises of drilling two production wells supported by a wellhead fixed platform. Production from the first well of the gas field started in March 2013. Gas produced from the York field is transported to the Easington gas terminal in Yorkshire via an export pipeline. The gas produced from the field will be capable of serving about 500,000 households. The platform and pipelines have been designed for a lifespan of 25 years. The platform has been designed to accommodate future tie-ins from neighbouring fields.
