Coro brings Italian field back on stream after enhancements

London-listed Coro Energy reported on June 6 that it had resumed production at the Sillaro, Rapagnano and Case Tiberi gas fields in Italy after undertaking some operational enhancements.

Coro reopened the previously-shuttered Sillaro field at the end of March this year, predicting it would earn over €5mn ($5.6mn) annually from the project on the back of high European gas prices. The field initially flowed at a rate of 17,000 m3/day of gas.

The company reported on May 26 that it had temporarily closed Sillaro again, however, after high temperatures in Italy led to an increase in moisture in its gas flow. Changes have now been made to the operation of the field's gas processing facility, including the gas stripping rate for glycol generation, Coro said. As a result, moisture levels in the gas are now well within pipeline specifications.

Wells at the Rapagnano and Casa Tiberi fields are also now back in production, after undertaking slick line operations.
