IOG brings UK's Saturn Banks back on stream

IOG has restarted production at the Saturn Banks gas project in the UK south North Sea following shutdown works, the London-listed company said on November 25.

Wells are flowing once more at both the Blythe and Elgood fields, the company said, noting that gas sales were expected to resume today after full repressurisation of the line. The third Saturn Banks field, Southwark, has been hooked up to the pipeline system, ahead of the launch of production there, expected at around the end of the year.

Further modifications were also completed at the Saturn Banks reception at the onshore Bacton terminal in England, IOG said.

Hydraulic stimulation operations at the A2 well at Southwark are expected to continue into December. Once the well yields its first gas, the A1 will be completed.
