Enterprise Completes Work at Nelson Platform

Enterprise Oil has completed the remedial work on the gas compressor on its Nelson platform in the UK Central North Sea. The facility had been producing at reduced rates of around 25,000 barrels of oil per day while the work was undertaken onshore by the original equipment manufacturer.

The remedial work was completed on schedule, and following the successful return and re-installation of the compressor onto the platform, the field has returned to production levels of around 70,000 bopd.

Enterprise has operated the Nelson field since first oil in 1994. It was discovered in 1988 and has produced over 300 million barrels of oil.
