Endeavour International announced that the second production well at the Nexen-operated Rochelle field in UK CNS will now start up in mid-Jan-2014, delayed from end-Dec-2013. The delay was caused due to poor weather conditions in the North Sea.
Rochelle’s first production well came online in Oct-2013. Endeavour announced that this well is now producing at about 14 MBOE/d (20% liquids).
The Rochelle field includes the blocks 15/26b, 15/26c and 15/27.
Rochelle ownership: Nexen (41%, operator), Endeavour (44%) and Premier Oil (15%).
