World Oil Staff July 03, 2023

(WO) – Perenco UK announced further material progress in the Southern North Sea (SNS), with the new Leman 27B compression station being brought online.  In addition, the Leman 27A and Inde 23A platforms have now been successfully reconfigured and de-manned to function in Normally-Unattended Installation (NUI) mode.

While clearly demonstrating Perenco UK’s commitment to safe and efficient operations, the project is expected to extend field life by potentially a decade or more.  Perenco UK has renovated, replaced or modified old, oversized infrastructure, replacing it with more modern, efficient, fit-for-purpose equipment that requires less maintenance and provides better uptime.  The successful delivery of this project is a key component of building a bright future for PUK in the North Sea.

Commenting on today’s announcement, Jonathan White, General Manager Perenco UK, said, “This project delivers a key part of the strategic vision for PUK.  By simplifying and rationalizing our equipment at the heart of the Leman and Inde hubs, we have reduced the level of CO2 emissions, fuel gas consumption and day-to-day running costs, leading to a more sustainable operation for the long-term.”
