OSLO, Jan 30 (Reuters) – Norwegian energy firm Statoil resumed production at the Statfjord C platform in the North Sea late on Wednesday after an oil leak shut activities at the installation on Sunday, the firm said on Thursday.
"Production on Statfjord C was resumed Wednesday evening after required inspection has been completed. The incident is currently being investigated," Statoil said in a statement.
Statfjord, including the A, B, and C platforms, produced about 23,000 barrels of oil per day in 2013, according to estimates by the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate.
