Statfjord C back on stream

January 25, 2002, 08:00 CET

Production from Statoil's Statfjord C platform, shut down for four days, was resumed early yesterday evening, 24 January.

The North Sea installation suspended production on 21 January after the discovery of corrosion damage to a pipe in the flare system. The damaged piece has now been replaced by a new section of pipe, reports platform manager Njål Sølvberg. The area around the damaged pipe has also been examined but no significant signs of corrosion have been found there.

Statfjord C produces 200,000 barrels of oil per day. This figure includes output from the Statfjord East, Statfjord North and Sygna satellites.
