The purpose of this document is to help industry efficiently conduct the stimulation of tight gas reservoirs in the UK Southern North Sea (SNS). The document is intended to provide relevant information aimed at existing and new entrant SNS operators who may benefit from an overview of stimulation techniques and new technologies. The document has been prepared in support of the OGA Southern North Sea Tight Gas Strategy, published in June 2017.

It is expected that this document will be periodically revised and updated as technology and working practices evolve. The intention is to seek feedback through relevant industry work groups and events, such as the East of England Energy Group (EEEGR) Tight Gas Work Group as well as anonymised insights obtained by the OGA through asset stewardship reviews.
