Blow for Harbour Energy as Tolmount project hit by delay

Harbour Energy warned today that first gas from the Tolmount field in the UK southern North Sea would be delayed after equipment glitches were uncovered. Production start-up had been on the slate for the end of July, but is now likely to be “around year-end”. London-listed Harbour said faults with offshore electrical systems had been flagged during final commissioning and testing. The company is investigating the issue and coming up with options for fixing the kit. Harbour conceded there was “uncertainty around the timing” and, as a result, has stripped Tolmount output from its full-year guidance, which is now 185-195,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day, on a proforma basis.
