"The group has made a good start to 2019,” said Amjad Bseisu, EnQuest's chief executive.

“Production is towards the top end of our full year guidance range, our capital programme is on track and we have continued to generate strong cash flows and reduce our debt.

"FPSO performance at Kraken has improved significantly with two trains online and we continue to drive further improvements with the FPSO operator. Production from DC4 at Kraken has been better than expected and both Magnus and PM8/Seligi have performed strongly.”

Bseisu added: “We remain confident of achieving our Group's 2019 production guidance of 63,000 to 70,000 boepd.”
