CALGARY, Canada – Talisman Energy has resumed production from its Rev field in the Norwegian North Sea.

Rev, a subsea tieback to the BG-operated Armada platform in the UK sector, had encountered mechanical issues associated with maintenance of the gas export line from the host platform.

Elsewhere in the region, Talisman expects its Claymore platform to re-start production by the end of October following a planned turnaround which has been extended to complete remediation work. This arose following a prohibition notice from the UK Health and Safety Executive.

Talisman is also implementing safety-related upgrades at its UK Tartan platform, which will likely lead to the facility being shut down for the remainder of this year.

The cumulative impact of these stoppages, along with planned maintenance programs, will be to reduce Talisman's North Sea production by around 13,000 boe/d to an average of 83,000 boe/d during 3Q 2011, rising to roughly 100,000 boe/d during 4Q.
