PERTH, Australia -- Production at the Galoc field has been suspended to allow the FPSO Rubicon Intrepid to disconnect from the mooring and riser system. This disconnection was prompted by adverse weather and FPSO equipment availability, according to Otto Energy.
The company is making plans for inspection of the mooring and riser system. This will be undertaken as soon as suitable ROV equipment is mobilized to the field and weather permits. The findings of the inspection will enable the need for any remedial action to be established, the company says.
