The Solan Field, located west of the Scottish Shetland Islands, was discovered in 1991. This is a major project within Premier Oil’s portfolio and one that has involved extensive project planning and development. The Myriad Global Media team has been documenting the progress of this project to date, providing high quality communications, incorporating both animation and live action footage.
Wednesday 10th September 2014 saw a momentous milestone in the project. Premier Oil announced that key facilities at the field had been successfully installed including the subsea oil storage tank, jacket and topsides. The Myriad Global Media video production team have been filming these events as they unfold in the harsh North Sea. The footage captured will contribute towards creating a project documentary, which will follow Solan’s incredible journey from field discovery through to first oil. It is of paramount importance to document and communicate projects with the significance and scale of Solan, and this film will allow Premier Oil to do this.
Looking to the future of Solan, the offshore hook-up and commissioning programme will now begin. The date of first oil from the field is dependent on the progress of this phase. The Myriad Global Media team are equally as excited as Premier Oil to reach this stage.
