Venoco Inc Provides Operations Update
Jul 16 15
Venoco Inc. has updated its capital plan for 2015, and will commence drilling operations on Platform Gail at the Sockeye Field. The company plans to drill two wells targeting the M2 zone. First production is expected in late August. Production activities at Platform Holly at the South Ellwood field remain temporarily suspended following the May 19, 2015 rupture of the third-party common carrier pipeline owned and operated by Plains All American Pipeline, L.P. Plains is not affiliated with Venoco and it owns and operates the affected pipeline completely independently from Venoco. The duration of the unavailability of the third-party pipeline is unknown and is contingent on, among other things, satisfactory compliance of corrective action orders issued by the US Department of Transportation (Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration). The company will resume full operations at Platform Holly when the Plains pipeline returns to service.
