UK-based producer Harbour Energy is eyeing first output from the NEO-operated Leverett oil and gas field late this year, following successful appraisal work, it said in a trading update January 18. Other material UK investments include the Talbot development, it said.
Other highlights from last year, aside from its transformational plan to acquire Wintershall DEA, include improved safety performance with total recordable injury rate of 0.7/mn hours worked, down from 0.8/mn hours in 2022; and the successful start-up of Tolmount East in the fourth quarter.
The government awarded its two UK carbon capture and storage projects Track 2 status. Harbour has awarded front end engineering and design contract for one of them, Viking; and the project has also secured its first potential CO2 shipping customer, it said.
