First production from the well was achieved on 23 August and since then work has continued to optimise production rates from the Bruce, Keith and Rhum fields.
In the last seven days, gross Rhum production has averaged over 190 million ft3/d of gas and 1400 bpd of condensate. This equates to an average gross production in excess of 34 000 boe/d for the Rhum field. This compares to a maximum rate of 26 000 boe/d immediately prior to the commencement of R3 production. Further work will continue in the coming weeks to optimise and stabilise production.
Serica has a 50% working interest in the Rhum field.
The successful recompletion of R3 has increased the Rhum production capacity utilising the existing facilities located on the Bruce platform. This is in line with Serica’s stated objective of reducing the carbon intensity (i.e. CO2 per barrel of oil equivalent) of its production operations.
