Alba offshore Equatorial Guinea moves toward compression

Offshore staff

HOUSTON – Noble Energy says its Alba field compression project offshore Equatorial Guinea is around 80% complete.

Installation of the new compression platform is expected to begin during 1Q 2016, resulting in the field being temporarily shut-in. First production from the compression facility, which will help slow decline and extend life of field recovery, should follow during mid-2016.

During 3Q 2015, Noble adds that the C-21 development well began production at Alba.
