LONDON – Leni Gas & Oil (LGO) has resumed production from the Eugene Island-184 (EI-184) platform in the Gulf of Mexico.

Production operations were resumed on June 3 at the EI-184 facilities following the transfer of operatorship to Marlin Energy LLP as previously announced in late May. All previously active wells (A1, A3, A4, A5 and A8) were returned to production and operational reporting to the joint venture partners has now been resumed.

During the initial five day ramp up period; gross physical production has averaged 1,199 Mcf/d and 402 b/d (609 boe/d). Once downtime is accounted for, this equates to an average daily rate of approximately 922 boe/d. LGO holds a 7.25% working interest in the EI-184 field.

Early indications are that production has been re-established at higher than pre-shut down levels; however, stabilized rates are not yet available and some flush production after a 60 day shut-in period would be expected.

“We are pleased that production and revenue has been restored so quickly and that all the wells have come back on-line after the shut-down,” said LGO chief executive Neil Ritson. “We now look forward to working with the new operator to plan for sidetracking and recompleting wells in the field to increase production.”
