BP Begins Production from Valhall Flank North

BP says that at 09:15 hrs on January 7th the oil started to flow from well N-15 on the Valhall Flank North platform. "The production start represents the culmination of months, or even years of hard work by a lot of people - BP as well as contractors can all be proud of what has been achieved on Valhall Flank North", says Jon Hafsmo Head of Southern Area Developments.

While this is happening, the drilling crew on West Epsilon continue to drill hole at a record phase, which is promising good for an early completion of the next well. Although it is to early to know exactly what the rate from the first well will be, it is definitely a highly welcome addition to BPN's production.
