Roc Oil restarts production at Cliff Head oil field offshore Western Australia

Source: Roc Oil

Roc Oil resumed normal production operations at the Cliff Head oil field, offshore Western Australia, on March 17. Uncontaminated crude oil deliveries from Cliff Head to BP’s Kwinana refinery in Perth recommenced on March 20.

Production at Cliff Head was temporarily suspended on February 17, following advice from BP that it had identified organic chloride in Cliff Head crude delivered to the BP refinery on February 15.

Organic chloride contamination of Cliff Head crude oil, which was related to batch chemical treatments being undertaken as part of the current Cliff Head 12 well workover, is not anticipated to be a recurring issue.

Participating interests in the Cliff Head oil field are Roc Oil as operator with 37.5 percent, AWE with 57.5 percent, and CIECO Energy Australia with 5 percent.
