LONDON -(Dow Jones)- BP PLC will shut down Angola's Greater Plutonia oil field, which is currently running at half capacity, for repairs in April, a company spokesman said Friday.
The field is producing just 95,000 barrels of oil a day currently, compared with an average production since startup of 180,000 barrels a day, because of problems with the water injection system, the spokesman said.
The field will be shut down in April to install a new water injection system and should return to full output in May, the spokesman said.
