Freezing Temps Cause Snag at Sleipner Plant
Citing Statoil, Dow Jones reported Monday that production from Statoil's Sleipner Area was curtailed over the weekend due to a snag at the Kaarstoe gas processing plant.
According to Statoil spokesman Gisle Johanson, freezing weather blasting through the Norwegian North Sea has resulted in slower production levels at the Sleipner field following operational problems at the field's Kaarstoe plant.
Gassco is utilizing steaming equipment to defrost the plant's frozen pipes and hopes to return the unit to full operation by Jan. 12, the Kaarstoe operator said.
