A Field is term used by geologists used to describe a pool or reservoir of hydrocarbons.

Within the offshore oil & gas industry, the term Field has become synonymous with a single or group of platforms that extracts hydrocarbons from that field, with offshore workers often referring to the fields name to describe where they are working.  Most notable of these is the Shell operated Brent Field, who’s name in turn was coined for the benchmark index price Brent Crude.
