AED Begins Production at Puffin North East

AED reports that the Puffin North East Development has commenced production, with first hydrocarbons from Puffin-8 reaching topsides on Saturday October 6th.

Puffin-8 has been producing approximately 12,000 stb/d on a 3/4" choke before being shut in, and Puffin-7 has subsequently been commissioned, reaching a maximum rate of around 16,000 stb/d over night.

Currently, the flow from both wells is being combined and the plan is to gradually increase the total flow through the process facilities to the interim commissioning rate of 27,000 stb/d, before progressing to stabilized production rate.
