Centrica Reports Good Performance from Upstream Activities

UK integrated energy firm Centrica reported Monday that the performance by its international upstream gas and oil business has been good so far this year.

In a trading update, Centrica said it expects total production from existing assets to be around 75 million barrels of oil equivalent in 2013, up from 67 MMboe in 2012. It added that it expects the package of Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin conventional gas and crude oil assets it is acquiring from Suncor to produce around 15 MMboe in 2013.

Meanwhile, the firm noted that it achieved first gas from its York and Rhyl fields during the first quarter of the year, while its other approved projects – Key, Grove, Valemon and Cygnus – remain on track to bring 86 Mmboe of reserves into production over the next three years.

In exploration, Centrica noted that two out of three wells drilled during the first quarter were successful.
