PERTH, Australia -- Reconnection of the FPSO Rubicon Intrepid on the Galoc field continues to be delayed, according to partner Otto Energy. The FPSO was disconnected due to adverse weather in the offshore Phillipines field.

The delay is due to mis-orientation and deformation of the mooring and riser system that connects the FPSO to the seabed and subsea wells. An underwater survey was undertaken to establish the extent of the problem and an offshore construction vessel has been mobilized to the field to carry out remedial work. The company is currently establishing the scope and duration of the remedial work.
