Premier Oil is set to extend the charter for the Voyageur Spirit FPSO in the North Sea.

The oil company entered into a heads of terms with Teekay in November to extend the employment of the Voyageur Spirit FPSO unit on the Huntington field for one more year.

The Premier-operated Huntington field was the highest net producer in the portfolio with production averaging 15.6 kboepd, up from 8.8 kboepd in the first half of 2016.
