EnQuest said today that its production was likely to drop this year due to the shutdown of two North Sea platforms.
Output was boosted last year thanks to a strong showing from EnQuest’s Kraken and Magnus fields.
Group production averaged 68,606 barrels of oil per day (boepd) in 2019, towards the higher end of guidance of 63-70,000 boepd.
But the shutdown on Thistle and Heather has led to EnQuest forecasting production in the 61-68,000 boepd range this year.
