Iona Energy Inc. is pleased to announce an operational update related to its Huntington Oil Field located in the UK North Sea.
During April 2014, Huntington saw average production of 9,880 boepd (1,734 boepd net to Iona) due to two unrelated issues. From April 12th to April 24th, Huntington production was suspended as the Voyageur FPSO underwent repairs to its inert gas system, work that was completed ahead of schedule, and production resumed on the 25th of April.
On April 26th, the Huntington partnership was notified of an unplanned shutdown of the Central Area Transmission System's (CATS) riser platform, shutting in multiple fields that export across the system. Huntington resumed production on May 11th and is now back at full capacity.
