To date, no third party arrangements have been entered into for use of the Alwyn Area platform facilities.

PERFORMANCE AND RELIABILITY
Alwyn/Dunbar production performance record is shown in the adjacent graph. A production efficiency of 88.8% was achieved in 2015 and a 94.5% efficiency has been achieved for the period January - July 2016. Shutdowns are scheduled (as far as possible) to coincide with shutdowns of our export systems through close liaison with operators. These actions, along with comprehensive maintenance strategies help to maintain high levels of uptime for the platform.
* Production efficiency is defined as the ratio between actual production and the addition of actual production plus the production (planned and unplanned) shortfalls.
