Production Normalises After BLM Shutdown, Pipeline Pressure Builds

After the recent BLM maintenance shutdown in April'23, production has normalised to the pre-shutdown levels of >2mmcf/d. The outage lasted for 8 days, after which it took another week for it to get back to average levels. It is worth noting in the figure below that the pipeline pressure has been building up over time but still has not reached its pre-shutdown levels of ~1,350 psia. There was another steep drop in production on 23rd May, 2023.
