Report: Statoil Resumes Full Production at Snorre B Platform in North Sea


OSLO, June 5 (Reuters) – Statoil's Snorre B platform in the North Sea is back in full production, the Stavanger Aftenblad daily reported on Friday.

Production at the platform was stopped in May following power cuts and a shift in the ground under a seabed installation.

Partial production resumed on May 23 but it was unclear until now when full production would resume.

Statoil was not immediately available for comment. Statoil's partners at the field include state-owned Petoro, ExxonMobil, Idemitsu Petroleum, RWE and Core Energy.
