Cooper suspends Sole flow back due to foul weather


Cooper Energy has taken a decision to suspend operations at its Sole well offshore Victoria in the Gippsland Basin due to adverse weather conditions.

The E&P company said it had battened down the hatches after the Bureau of Meteorology had red flagged encroaching conditions that were “outside operating limits for the forthcoming weekend.”

“In such weather conditions safe operations of the Sole flow back cannot be assured and therefore preparations for the flow back have been suspended until the weather forecast improves. It is expected the weather will result in an interruption to operations of three to five days,” the company added.
