It highlighted that the 70% owned Kraken field produced 31,427 bopd while the group’s other operations had a better-than-expected performance.

EnQuest noted that its acquisition of interests in the Magnus field, the Sullom Voe Terminal and associated infrastructure completed with effect from 1 December.
"We have continued to deliver in line with our 2018 production targets,” said Amjad Bseisu, EnQuest chief executive.
“We have also made good initial progress in reducing our debt, with cash generated by operations facilitating additional voluntary repayments and we will continue to prioritise debt reduction through 2019 and beyond.
"We are delighted to have completed the acquisition of Magnus, the Sullom Voe Terminal and associated infrastructure from BP. Magnus increases production and cash flow through the addition of significant low-cost 2P reserves.”
