SAGA AND BP BEGIN PRODUCTION FROM TWO NORTH SEA OIL FIELDS
Two more oil fields have gone on stream in the North Sea. Production from Snorre oil field in Blocks 34/4 and 34/7 off Norway is gathering momentum after the field began flowing last month, 6 weeks early. Operator Saga Petroleum AS reports that the second production well went on stream Sept. 1. Flow from the first well has stabilized at 32,000 b/d. The company is confident production will reach 100,000 b/d relatively quickly.
