Philip LeJeune, LLOG’s president and chief executive officer, said: “We are pleased to announce first oil from our Praline field, our first pipe-in-pipe tieback, and the continued successful development of our high-quality prospect inventory.
“Praline is the first of four tieback projects we expect to have online in the next year. I am particularly proud that through the challenging year of 2020, our Praline field partners and Talos, our host platform partner, were able to continue with the Praline development and safely deliver a project that is more than 20 per cent under budget.
“As we look toward the future, LLOG remains committed to maintaining the same high environmental, safety and operational standards that have successfully guided us for over twenty years as a premier operator in the Gulf of Mexico. We remain focused on sustainably and profitably continuing our field development campaign over the coming years”.
