Statfjord C Back on Stream

Production from Statoil's Statfjord C platform, shut down for four days, was resumed early yesterday evening, January 24th. The North Sea installation suspended production on January 21st 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 The damaged piece has now been replaced by a new section of pipe, reports platform manager Njal Solvberg. 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.
