Serica Energy has provided an update to production operations on the Erskine field. As previously announced, production from the Erskine field was suspended on 31 July for facilities maintenance coinciding with a period of maintenance of the Forties Pipeline System through which Erskine condensate is transported. At the same time a planned treatment to soak and remove wax build-up in the Lomond to Everest condensate export pipeline has been carried out. Production was scheduled to recommence in the past week.

The operator of the Lomond platform has advised the Company that recommencement of production operations is expected to be deferred for a further two weeks in order to allow monitoring and control of methanol and xylene components used for the wax treatment prior to resumption of exports to the Forties Pipeline System. On completion of this process, Erskine wells will be flowed at maximum rates to clear the treated wax from the line. If the line is sufficiently clear, a pigging programme will then be implemented to maintain the pipeline going forward although it is possible that further chemical treatment may be required before pigging can start.

Serica is amending its full year production guidance to between 2,200boe/d and 2,400boe/d to provide for the extended period of facilities maintenance.

During this period the opportunity has been taken to improve equipment performance, including finalising the installation of a back-up export pump on the Erskine production module on the Lomond platform and overhauling the power generation system.
