DONG's Siri Platform Passes the 50 Million Barrel Mark

Earlier this month, the Siri Platform in the Danish sector of the North Sea reached a milestone when production passed 50 million barrels of oil. The platform went on stream in March 1999, and total production from the platform is now around 40,000 barrels of oil per day.

Since DONG took over the operatorship of the Siri field in August 2002 around 9.4 million barrels of oil have been produced from the platform.

Besides producing oil from the Siri field, the Siri platform functions as the parent platform for a number of satellite fields. Production from nearby Stine Segment 2 began in 2001, and production from the Nini and Cecilie fields in August 2003.

When Stine Segment 1 goes on stream in January 2004, yet another field will be connected to Siri. That will add some years to the platform's lifetime. The oil from Stine Segment 1 will be produced from an unmanned installation on the seabed.
