Morocco Production Update
Further to the announcement of 8 August 2016, Circle Oil plc (AIM: COP) the international oil and gas exploration, development and production company, is pleased to announce the completion of gas pipeline repairs in Morocco.
As announced previously, an earth movement near to the town of Kenitra in northern Morocco resulted in the temporary closure of an Office National des Hydrocarbures et des Mines (ONHYM) owned and operated gas pipeline spur. This pipeline spur was used to transport approximately 30% of the gas produced in the Sebou field, which is owned by Circle Oil Maroc (who operate the field with a working interest of 75%) and ONHYM (with a working interest of 25%).
The pipeline was closed whilst a repair was designed and implemented. The repair was carried out by Circle without incident, on schedule and slightly under budget. Production was restarted through the repaired pipeline on 15 September 2016.
