Rochelle suspended during Forties pipeline maintenance
Endeavour has updated development activities at three fields in the UK central North Sea.
The Nexen-operated Scott platform has undergone a planned shutdown to coincide with maintenance works on the Forties pipeline system. Production from the satelliteRochelle field will remain shut-in until the platform is reactivated.
At the Chevron-operated Alba field, the A69 well is being completed and is expected to startproduction this month. In the southern part of the field, partial water injection has been reinstated. A replacement pipeline should be installed early next year followed by start-up in spring 2015.
The Apache-operatedBacchus field is performing above expectations apart from the B3Y well, which has been converted to a water injector following technical issues.
