LONDON, June 4 -- First oil production has begun from Enoch field in the North Sea, reported field operator Talisman North Sea Ltd. The cross-border field is 160 miles northeast of Aberdeen and straddles the UK and Norwegian sectors in UKCS Block 16/13a and NCS Block 15/5 (unitized at 80% and 20%, respectively).

Production, expected to produce 15,000 boe/d at peak, is from a single horizontal development well, which Talisman drilled in 2006. The oil will be processed at the Brae Alpha facility 10 miles northwest of Enoch and exported via the Forties pipeline network.
