Shell has gained operatorship of Knarr and Gaupe fields in the UK North Sea from BG Norge AS. 

An oil and gas field, Gaupe is located close to the boundary with the UK Continental Shelf, 12km south of Varg. In 90m of water, the field has been developed using two subsea wells.

The well stream is taken to the Armada facility on the UK shelf.

BG secured approval to use the seabed facilities and pipelines in February 2012, and production started the following month.

"Knarr field is in 410m of water."

Knarr is an oilfield in the North Sea, located 50km north-east of Snorre. The field is in 410m of water and has been developed using subsea wells and a floating production unit, Petrojarl Knarr FPSO.

While oil is loaded from the FPSO into tankers, the gas is piped to St Fergus in Scotland.
