A Covid 19 outbreak on Ithaca Energy's FPF-1 platform in the UK North Sea has forced the oil and gas company to shut down production, BBC reported Thursday.

According to BBC, four crew members from the offshore production platform have tested positive and have been sent ashore. 

The news agency further reported that close contacts of the four were being taken onshore as well. 

The FPF-1 floating production facility is located in Block 30/6a, some 255 km east of Aberdeen, and serves the Ithaca-operated Greater Stella Area production hub.

Offshore Engineer has reached out to Ithaca Energy, seeking more details. We'll update the article with any response we may receive.

The Ithaca Energy operated Greater Stella Area is located in the Central Graben area of the Central North Sea. The FPF-1 produces oil and gas from Stella, Harrier, and Vorlich fields.

Ithaca's production for the first nine months of 2020 was 68 thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day (“kboe/d”), 61% liquids. 

The company, a subsidiary of Israeli company Delek, last November said that full-year 2020 production was anticipated to be at the top end of the 63-68 kboe/d guidance range.
