The Van Gogh oil field will be shut in during the maintenance activities. Since October, the FPSO has been shut several times for unplanned and planned repairs.

The Van Gogh field was producing approximately 40,000 barrels per day (bpd). With a 52.5 percent stake, Apache operates the Van Gogh field, while Inpex holds the remaining.
