Elgin/Franklin Fields Back Onstream
The Elgin/Franklin fields in the U.K. North Sea have come onstream, but "a low production rate is being maintained," according to a spokesman for Total.
The fields were shut down midnight Sunday and were supposed to remain closed for just 36 hours while planned maintenance work was carried out. But the expected mid-day Tuesday restart was delayed due to a technical problem. Full production from the fields is expected by the end of Thursday.
At full capacity, the combined production of Elgin and Franklin fields is about 140,000 barrels of condensate and 13 million cubic meters of gas a day.
