Lundin recommences production on Thistle on 12 January

Production was suspended following a fire in one of the Thistle Alpha installation’s three power generation turbine enclosures on the 25th November 2007.

Lundin Britain Limited (Lundin), a wholly owned subsidiary of Lundin Petroleum, holds a 99 percent interest in the Thistle field. Petrofac Facilities Management (Petrofac) has, since May 2005, been the Duty Holder of the Thistle Alpha installation under contract to Lundin and is responsible for the operation of the installation.
