The company said a data collection programme on the selected wells is already underway, repairs of the existing pumps have been completed, and it is also working on updating waterflooding schemes for other areas of the Beach Marcelle field.

Yan Liu, Range's chief executive officer, commented: “Our initial plan is to complete data collection which will help us in gathering comprehensive information on the selected wells. We will be using the findings to activate additional wells and increase the waterflooding area of the SE Project.”

He added; “In tandem, we are continuing with our previously announced programme of infrastructure modernisation at the Beach Marcelle field which is expected to provide a greater resilience in the production infrastructure and accommodate the anticipated production growth at the field.

“Waterflood projects remain key to developing our large reserves base in Trinidad in the longer term and we look forward to continuing work to unlock the value of our assets."
