Stavanger, 21 March 2013: Norwegian Energy Company ASA (Noreco) reports that the Huntington field development is approaching first oil.
All risers are connected to the subsea facilities, and consequently the entire Huntington system is fully connected from the wells to the FPSO Voyageur Spirit. The final subsea preparations for first oil and pre-commissioning are being finalised prior to start up which is anticipated shortly.
The operator projects first oil by the end of March 2013. This projection is dependent on weather conditions and completion of final technical work according to plan. After a ramp-up period the field is expected to produce around 6,000 barrels oil equivalents per day net to Noreco.
