This paper reviews approaches to the exploitation of reserves from moderate to high net:gross submarine fan systems from the UK sector of the North sea. Examples are given from the Forties, Magnus and Andrew fields. It is shown how contrasting reservoir management approaches and experiences can be related to architectural elements of the different fan systems. The submarine fans range in age from Jurassic to Palaeocene and the development schemes from platform drilled 'conventional' wells to geosteered horizontal. These examples are broadly representative of other submarine fan reservoirs in the North Sea.
