Erskine production resumes after pipeline blockage

Serica Energy said production has resumed from the Erskine field after a pipeline blockage.

It also follows the completion of scheduled maintenance on the Lomond platform.

The pipeline blockage occurred earlier this year in the Lomond to Everest condensate export line and was caused when a foam cleaning device became lodged in the pipeline due to a build-up of wax, according to a statement.

Tony Craven Walker, Serica’s Chairman, said:”Since Serica acquired its interest in the Erskine field in June 2015, it has made a significant contribution to cashflow and profits. This has equipped us to withstand issues such as this shutdown.

“Now that production has resumed we expect this strong performance to continue as we seek to add further interests to increase shareholder value at a time of low oil and gas prices.”

Serica said following the clean-out of the pipeline, the field remained shut-in to accommodate a two month maintenance programme on the Lomond platform.

On completion of these maintenance programmes condensate flow from the Lomond field started in mid-July in order to flush the export line, with higher volume Erskine production re-commencing from late on the 27th July.

Following a short period for final clean-up during the first week of August, production from Erskine is projected to build-up rapidly to the fully unconstrained levels achieved prior to the shut-down.
