LONDON – First oil has flowed from the Huntington field development in the UK central North Sea that is operated by E.ON Exploration and Production.
Following an initial ramp up, production is estimated to reach 25-30,000 boe/d, said partner Premier Oil.
Huntington produces through the modified FPSO Voyageur Spirit. Other main facilities are a six-well subsea drilling template and a 12-km (7.5 mi) gas export pipeline connected to the CATS transportation system.
The field is 230 km (143 mi) offshore in a water depth of 90 m (295 ft). Other partners in the project are Noreco and Iona Energy.
