Weather conditions delayed access to the wellhead platform for several days after rectification of the FPSO power issue. Personnel were then mobilised to the wellhead platform to normalise the wells. However,start-up of production has thus far not been successful. Trouble-shooting activities are underway in order to identify the cause and restore production as soon as is possible.
