Approval for the Golden Eagle Area Development project was granted in October 2011 and production began in November 2014 at a rate of 18,000 barrels of oil a day. Peak production will hit 70,000 barrels a day, with a total of 140 million barrels expected to be recovered over 18 years of operation. Two platforms were constructed for the field - a wellhead platform and a process, utility and quarters platform, with a bridge to connect them. A total of 15 production wells and six water injection wells are scheduled to be drilled during the lifetime of the development. Oil is piped to the Flotta oil terminal in Orkney.
