Huntington Field Starts Production
Premier Oil announced Monday that oil production has begun at the Huntington field in the UK zone of the central North Sea. After an initial ramp-up period, the field is expected to produce between 23,000 and 25,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.
Premier holds a 40-percent interest in the field, while its operator, E.ON Exploration and Production holds 25 percent. Noreco and Iona Energy have 20 percent and 15 percent stakes respectively in Huntington.
Premier CEO Simon Lockett commented in a company statement:
"We are delighted to have achieved first oil from the Huntington oil field. This marks the first of four UK North Sea projects from our development portfolio which will come on-stream over the next few years. We look forward to the field making a significant contribution to our worldwide production and cash flow growth."
The Huntington development is using the Voyageur Spirit FPSO vessel, a six-well subsea drilling template and a 7-mile gas export pipeline that is connected to the BP CATS transportation system.
