Compressor breaks down on North Sea Scott platform

Offshore staff

HOUSTONEndeavour International says the Nexen-operated Rochelle field in the UK central North Sea is now offline until repairs to the dry gas export compressors on the host Scott platform are completed.

Last month a planned shutdown of the Scott platform and associated Forties Pipeline System was done, with Rochelle field returning to production on Aug. 26. Output had exceeded 100 MMcf/d (2.8 MMcm/d) prior to the latest shut-in on Sept. 9, caused by the Scott platform problem.

Repairs are under way and production from Rochelle is expected to be restored later this month.

Endeavour has a 44% interest in the field.
