DNO International ASA confirmed that it has restarted production from the West Bukha field in Block 8 offshore Sultanate of Oman, at an estimated daily rate of 10,000 b/o and 25 MMcf of gas following a five-month shutdown required to locate and repair a pipeline blockage.
The fast track repair included cutting and replacing a 4.3 km section of the 12-in pipeline connecting the field to the gathering and export facilities at the nearby Bukha field.
Bukha field production, also from two wells, was not impacted by the blockage and will continue at an estimated daily rate of 400 barrels of liquids and 10 MMcf of gas. A third recently drilled West Bukha development well will be brought on stream this fall following completion and further testing. A fourth West Bukha development well is progressing according to plan and drilling ahead at 4,490 m (14,730 ft).
DNO International, operator, holds 50% interest in Block 8; and Korea's LG International, 50%.
