Noreco Saw Production Boost in July

Norwegian Energy Company (Noreco) reported Tuesday an increase in its monthly production in spite of technical issues at several of its fields. Noreco said that it saw net production of 3,874 barrels of oil equivalent per day during July, compared to 3,538 boepd in June.

The Huntington field produced 2,344 boepd, although Noreco said that technical issuers related to one of two gas compressor trains at the Huntington platform continues to hamper the ramp-up of production at the field.

Production at the Nini (125 boepd), Nini East (1,267 boepd) and Cecilie (137 boepd) fields were shut down in July due to technical issues at the Siri field host platform. Noreco said the operator is working to resolve the issue but has not yet given any estimate of when production can resume.

The Lulita field continues to be shut in due to an unsuccessful repair of an emergency shutdown valve in the Harald gas export pipeline. Production here is expected to restart in August or September.

The Oselvar field came back on stream in August 2. The field was shut down for the whole of June and July due to maintenance on Ekofish and Ula.

Meanwhile, Noreco said the Enoch field is still shut in pending maintenance work.
