Sable Offshore Energy Project
Shell is one of the owners of the Sable Offshore Energy Project (SOEP). SOEP is the first offshore natural gas project in Atlantic Canada to deliver gas to the Maritimes and to the northeastern United States via the Maritimes and Northeast Pipeline.
Shell production from Sable was approximately 100 million cubic feet per day in 2010, accounting for 15 per cent of Shell Canada’s natural gas production. SOEP includes five producing offshore natural gas fields. Production from the first three fields (tier 1), Venture, Thebaud and North Triumph began on December 31, 1999. Development of the Tier 2, Alma gas field, came onstream at the end of 2003 and the South Venture field began production in late 2004.
