Nexen Restarts Production at Buzzard

Nexen says that following repairs made over the weekend, the Buzzard platform has been restarted and production is ramping back up to full rates. Late last week, the platform was temporarily shutdown when routine post-storm inspections revealed damage to one of the power generation turbine stacks. The damage has been repaired, all the stacks have been inspected and the turbines restarted.

Nexen has a 43.2% operated working interest in Buzzard. Other co-venturers include Petro-Canada (29.9%), BG Group (21.7%) and Edinburgh Oil and Gas Limited (5.2%).
