UK North Sea-focused oil and gas company Tailwind said earlier this week that successful well intervention had been completed at the Dana-operated Bittern Field.
The Bittern field produces oil via the Triton FPSO, located in block 21/30, approximately 120 miles east of Aberdeen.
“On well PA-A2, new perforations were added to the upper reservoir and a water shut-off plug in the lower reservoir section delivering an increase in oil rate of c. 3,000 boe/d above the pre-existing oil rate of c. 1,000 boe/d,” Tailwind Energy said.
Dana had been a non-operated partner in the Bittern field since 2010, holding a 4.73% stake in the field until the acquisition of Hess’ 28.3% share in 2012.
The Bittern oil and gas field is located in Blocks 29/1a and 29/1b, 22 km southeast of the Triton FPSO. The field was discovered in 1996 and has been developed through five production wells and two water injection wells via a subsea tie-back to the Triton FPSO. First production was in April 2000.
