Dana Petroleum is celebrating a milestone for its Western Isles project as it has offloaded its first 10million barrels of oil.
The FPSO in the northern North Sea achieved first oil in November.
Since then, Aberdeen-based Dana said the vessel has made 47 offloads, totalling 10million barrels of oil.
The Western Isles vessel produces from the Harris and Barra oil fields, 100miles east of Shetland.
Dana – owned by Korea National Oil Corporation − has a 77% working interest in the project, while Cieco has 23%.
In a social media post, Dana’s head of capital projects, Keith Williams, hailed the achievement.
He said: “10 million barrels offload milestone from Western Isles achieved on 6th October. 95% ops efficiency achieved so far.
“A great achievement by the offshore and onshore ops teams.”
The £1.5billion project was sanctioned by the UK government in 2012.
The milestone comes after Dana sold its entire stake in the North Sea Arran field in August to RockRose Energy.
Dana did not comment on the sale.
