Iona Energy has informed that the four production wells at Huntington field, located in the UK North Sea, are now fully back on stream.
The company previously reported that E.ON, the Huntington Operator, had notified of resumption of service from the Central Area Transmission System (CATS).
Now that the wells at Huntington are fully back on stream they are currently producing around 25,000 bbls of oil per day with around 3,000 boe of associated gas per day exported into CATS (28,000 boe/day gross, 4,200 boe/day net to Iona’s 15% working interest).
According to the company, the production rates are in line with expectations of initial rates from the wells post a period of shutdown.
Production levels at the Huntington field will continue to depend on access to the CATS gas export system. Production may be reduced in June and July this year while planned maintenance is being undertaken at the CATS gas receiving terminal.
The Huntington oil field is operated by E.ON which owns 25% stake. Other partners in the field are Premier Oil with 40% interest, and Noreco and Iona Energy with 20 % and 15% ownership, respectively.
