Huntington field resumes production
Huntington offshore oilfield in the UK North Sea has resumed production.
Noreco has announced that the replacement of equipment on board the Voyageur Spirit FPSO, was completed yesterday.
The field, operated by E.ON is now back in production and is currently producing at a rate between 5 000-6 000 boepd to Noreco.
Production at the Huntington field was closed down from 31 July to 26 August for planned maintenance at the CATS gas transportation system and on the floating production unit Voyageur Spirit.
As ordinary production was about to resume, technical issues related to the low pressure compressor on board curbed output from the field to around 10-15,000 boepd (100 per cent basis).
Certain equipment on board the production platform needed to be replaced before production can be restored to full rates, calling for a complete shutdown of production.
