Serica Energy has lowered its full-year production outlook due to the Forties pipeline shutdown.
Serica said this morning that output for 2017 would now be closer to 2,000 barrels of oil per day, down from a range of 2,200-2,400 barrels.
The London-listed firm’s only producing asset, the Erskine field, in which it holds an 18% stake, uses the pipeline.
The Bruce, Keith and Rhum fields are also affected.
Serica agreed to buy stakes in those three assets from BP last month, though the deal isn’t expected to go through until the middle of next year.
