Premier Oil

Premier Oil said in late December that it expected to produce first oil from the Solan field in the West of Shetlands area offshore the UK in January. The originally planned startup in the fourth quarter of last year was delayed by adverse weather conditions, the company said. Premier has a 100% stake in the field, which is expected to achieve a plateau production rate of between 20,000 B/D and 25,000 B/D.
