LONDON – EnQuest has provided updates on its current North Sea production and decommissioning programs.
In the East Shetland basin of the UK northern North Sea, output from the Magnus field has been impacted by gas compressor performance, part-offset by good production efficiency.
Two new wells came onstream in late March and are performing as expected.
Elsewhere in the northern sector, production fell at the Dons field due to lower levels of water injection, gas compression downtime, and underlying natural declines.
EnQuest is seeking removal approvals for cessation of production from the Heather/Broom and Thistle/ Deveron fields, and at the same time continues work on dealing with redundant crude oil storage tanks at Thistle.
At the company’s flagship Kraken heavy oil field, production during the first four months of 2020 averaged 38,115 b/d. At the FPSO, production efficiency remained above 80%.
Subsurface and well performance remains strong, the company added, with the aggregate water cut stable.
Drilling at Worcester on the western part of Kraken is progressing, with the new wells expected to come onstream around mid-year.
