LONDON -- Total production from the Jacky and Beatrice fields has now been optimized at daily rates exceeding 12,000 b/d of oil, according to Ithaca Energy.

For July, average production from the two fields was approximately 11,770 b/d of oil, the company says. The Jacky field continues to produce ‘dry’ oil, but Ithaca believes that the likely ultimate total production volume could exceed current company expectations.

Next month, the company is scheduled to drill a water injection well that will maintain reservoir pressure and support future production through 2010 and beyond.
