The firm confirmed it had reduced its peak $800million in debt in the first half of the year to less than $690million as of October 31.

The firm’s average production was up year-on-year, from 10,640 boepd to 12,355 boepd.

“In parallel, solid progress continues to be made on the Stella development, with commissioning operations advancing on the critical path FPF-1 modifications programme.”
