According to a report by Dow Jones Newswires, Royal Dutch Shell has shut-in production from its massive Ormen Lange gas development due to adverse weather conditions.

"Work is being done to assess the situation and measures are being put in place to remedy [it]," a Shell spokesman told Dow Jones Newswires.

Located on the Norwegian Continental Shelf in water depths ranging from 800 to 1,100 meters, Ormen Lange is the Europe's third-largest gas field with estimated recoverable reserves of 14 Tcf (397 Bcm) of natural gas.

The field was discovered in 1997, and has a maximum production capacity of 70 million cubic meters of gas per day. Gas is transported through Langeled, the world's longest subsea gas pipeline.
