DNO restarts West Bukha flow offshore Oman

DNO International ASA has restarted production at West Bukha oil field on Block 8 offshore Oman after repairing a blocked pipeline connecting the field with Bukha field.

The company shut in production in March when the pipeline became blocked during routine pigging (OGJ Online, July 18, 2012). The field then was producing about 7,000 b/d of oil and 25 MMcfd of natural gas.

After cutting and replacing a 4.3-km section of the 12-in. pipeline, DNO brought two wells in the field back onstream at combined rates of 10,000 b/d of oil and 25 MMcfd of gas.

It has drilled a third well, which awaits completion and testing, and is drilling a fourth.

DNO holds a 50% interest in the block. LG International of South Korea holds the other 50%.
