Talisman Opens Up Duart Taps Ahead of Schedule

Talisman Energy has commenced production from the Duart field approximately two months ahead of schedule.

The Duart field was discovered in 1988 and is located 116 miles northeast of Aberdeen in Block 14/20b, approximately five miles west of the Tartan platform. The field was developed with a single well tied back to the Tartan platform. Duart oil will be exported via the Flotta system, together with other Tartan area production. Initial production rates are expected to exceed 6,000 bbls/d.

The field is an integral part of Talisman's plans to prolong the life of both the Tartan platform and the Flotta export system.

Talisman Energy (UK) Limited operates the Duart field with a 50% interest and the remaining 50% is owned by Nexen Petroleum U.K. Limited.
