Brent C Platform Back Online
|Friday, January 18, 2002
Shell's Brent C offshore platform was put back into operation early Friday. Production was restarted at 2100GMT Thursday, while gas production restarted at 0245GMT Friday. Output is now working its way back up to normal levels, which can take approximately 24 hours. An alert caused by a hydrogen sulfide gas leak earlier in the week had prompted staff to partially evacuate the platform. Production was shut in while investigations took place.
