CALGARY, Canada Ithaca Energy says the FPF-1 floating production semisubmersible has completed the final marine system trials and has started sail-away to the Stella field in the UK central North Sea.

The anticipated period from sail-away to Stella first hydrocarbons is about three months.

After beginning sea trials in May, Ithaca announced in late July that the vessel has been moved to a deepwater location offshore Gdansk to undertake final marine system trials.
