Further to previous announcements, Lomond platform operator Shell has advised that the issues concerning the re-commissioning of the Lomond export facilities have been resolved and Erskine oil and gas production resumed on 29 August. This follows the reported work to clear a blockage in the Lomond to Everest condensate export line and the summer maintenance programme on the Lomond platform.
Since restarting, production has averaged over 3000 boed net to Serica, with a peak rate of over 5000 boe on one day demonstrating the strong capability of the reservoir. Fluctuations in rates have been due to some restrictions on the Forties Pipeline System with production over the remainder of the year expected to be in the range of 2500 - 3000 boed, net to Serica.
