Solan on track for late-year start-up

Offshore staff

LONDONPremier Oil remains on course to start production from the Solan oil field west of Shetland later this year.

The company says there has been good productivity at the offshore location. Various critical platform equipment items have been commissioned including the firewater deluge system and the gas detection system.

There now remains 34,000 hours of planned commissioning activity to first oil (down from 56,000 hours in August), and these are being reduced at the rate of 600-800 hours per day.

Commissioning of the subsea infrastructure is also progressing well.
