ExxonMobil Resumes SOEP Production Activites

Gas production from the Sable Offshore Energy Project (SOEP) was shut-in at approximately 2:10 a.m. ADT, on April 7, 2009 as a result of operational incidents.

Since that time, ExxonMobil, the operator of SOEP, has been repairing equipment in order to resume production.

The CNSOPB has reviewed the offshore incidents and approved ExxonMobil's repair and pre-start test programs.

ExxonMobil has now completed these programs and has resumed production activities effective April 12, 2009.
