Vintage Energy has announced that Vali and Odin are back online following scheduled shutdown for both wells.
Production has resumed ahead of schedule for Vali and Odin at a combined rate in excess of 7 Million standard cubic feet per day (MMscfd).
Vintage is a 50 per cent interest-holder and operator of the ATP 2021 and PRL 211 joint ventures – in which Metgasco and Bridgeport are respectively 25 per cent interest-holders.
The company said the contractor engaged to conduct operations at Vali-2 from early November has advised of rescheduling due to availability of equipment and crew which means commencement is now most likely to occur from end-November.
Production from Vali and Odin has resumed from the third-party downstream outage disclosed in the previous operations update of 17 October.
The outage, which necessitated shut-in of Odin-1 from 13 October and Vali-1 from 15 October, concluded ahead of schedule and production from both fields recommenced on 27 October.
Within the shut-in period, there were some days when the fields were temporarily online and this, together with the early resumption, means Vali and Odin were shut-in for approximately one week less than anticipated.
Both Vali-1 and Odin-1 restarted strongly without assistance following the shut-in and restarted with total raw gas production exceeding 7 MMscfd.
At present, no further outages are scheduled by the downstream operator for the current quarter.
