Gas Production Restarts at ONHYM Pipeline in Morocco
Gas production has restarted at an Office National des Hydrocarbures et des Mines (ONHYM) owned and operated gas pipeline spur in Morocco, following the completion of gas pipeline repairs.
An earth movement near to the town of Kenitra in northern Morocco resulted in the temporary closure of the pipeline. This pipeline spur was used to transport approximately 30 percent of the gas produced in the Sebou field, which is owned by Circle Oil Maroc, which operates the field with a working interest of 75 percent, and ONHYM, which holds the remaining 25 percent interest.
The pipeline was closed whilst repair work was designed and implemented. The repair was carried out by Circle without incident, on schedule and slightly under budget. Production was restarted through the repaired pipeline on September 15.
