HOUSTON, June 29 -- ConocoPhillips, operator of Algeria's Menzel Lejmat North (MLN) field on Block 405a in the Berkine basin, plans to resume oil production from that field by the end of the third quarter, reported Talisman Energy Inc., a 35%-interest partner.
Field production has been halted due to damage of a gas reinjection compressor motor after a high-voltage surge caused the reinjection motor rotor ring to rupture. The motor has been shipped to France for repair.
Meanwhile, field maintenance and second phase compression preparatory work are under way.
Talisman's first quarter oil production from MLN averaged 11,591 b/d net.
