UK's Elgin Franklin natural gas field production 'back to normal levels'

London (Platts)--28 Dec 2017 705 am EST/1205 GMT


Natural gas production at the Elgin Franklin field in to North Sea is "back to normal levels," operator Total said in a REMIT message Thursday morning.


  • 8.5 mil cu m/d available capacity for Thursday's gas day
  • Gas flows into Bacton SEAL running at 9 mil cu m/d
  • Full 10 mil cu m/d capacity due by early Friday

Elgin Franklin, which has a technical capacity of 10 million cu m/d, will have 8.5 million cu m/d of available capacity during Thursday's gas day.

Total said that "delivery to Bacton SEAL will slowly increase over the course of the day to normal rates."

National Grid data showed that flows into the UK National Transmission System through the Bacton SEAL receiving terminal were running at 9 million cu m/d at 1030 GMT Thursday.

Gas production at Elgin Franklin was halted on December 12 due to the closure of the Forties Pipeline System, where flows resumed earlier in the week.

Ineos said in an update Thursday morning that the repair of the pipeline at Red Moss was "mechanically complete," and that "all restrictions on the flow of oil and gas from platforms feeding into the pipeline system have been fully lifted."
