Glitne in full production

January 17, 2003, 14:45 CET

The Statoil-operated Glitne field in the North Sea is now producing normally again after loading oil in the early hours of 17 January. The field has produced 36,000 barrels of oil per day since the evening of Thursday 16 January.

Production was reduced by 10,000 barrels per day between 15 and 16 January because of limited storage capacity on the production and storage vessel Petrojarl 1. This was due to bad weather conditions in the North Sea.
