Statoil reported yesterday, February 10th, that production from the Kvitebjorn platform was stopped and production from the Heidrun platform will be stopped to repair the flare knock-out drums on these platforms.
Sleipner B has constructions that are similar to those on Kvitebjorn and Heidrun, and a specialist team at Statoil has therefore made a detailed evaluation of the design of this platform as well.
The team concluded that there is no need to repair the knock-out drums on Sleipner B at the moment, but they will be inspected in connection with the scheduled turnaround in June this year.
Statoil has reviewed all of its installations to control the flare knock-out drums. This has been done as a precautionary measure following the gas leak on the Visund platform on January 19th.
