Buru Energy restarts Ungani oil field production

Buru Energy has provided an update in relation to the restart of production from the Ungani oil field (Buru 50% and Operator, ROC Oil 50%).
Oil production at the Ungani Production Facility (UPF) was suspended on 5 January 2023, due to the impact of ex-Tropical Cyclone Ellie on sections of the Great Northern Highway and the Fitzroy River bridge at Fitzroy Crossing, resulting in the closure of the oil transportation road route from the UPF to the export facility at Wyndham Port.
Following the construction by Main Roads WA of a low-level crossing of the Fitzroy River at Fitzroy Crossing that is suitable for heavy vehicles, Buru has recommenced trucking operations on 8 May 2023 to clear the current oil inventory at the UPF.
Subsequently, production operations have restarted at the UPF, with initial oil production rates similar to pre-shut-in rates of between 500 and 600 bopd. The next oil lifting from Wyndham Port destined for the SE Asian market is planned for Q3 CY 2023.
