Production Resumed at Leni's Eugene Platform
Leni Gas & Oil announced resumption of production from the Eugene Island-184 ("EI-184") platform in the Gulf of Mexico.
Production operations were resumed safely on June 3, 2011 at the EI-184 facilities following the transfer of operatorship to Marlin Energy LLP ("Marlin") as previously announced in late May. All previously active wells (A1, A3, A4, A5 and A8) were returned to production and operational reporting to the Joint Venture partners has now been resumed.
During the initial five day ramp up period; gross physical production has averaged 1,199 mcfpd and 402 bopd (609 boepd). Once downtime is accounted for, this equates to an average daily rate of approximately 922 boepd. LGO holds a 7.25% working interest in the EI-184 field.
Early indications are that production has been re-established at higher than pre-shut down levels, however, stabilized rates are not yet available and some flush production after a 60 day shut-in period would be expected.
Neil Ritson, LGO's Chief Executive, commented, "We are pleased that production and revenue has been restored so quickly and that all the wells have come back on-line after the shut-down. We now look forward to working with the new operator to plan for sidetracking and recompleting wells in the field to increase production."
